The fees are at the discretion of the treating allied health practitioners / natural therapist. Rebates are available through Medicare or private health funds. A GP referral may be required. For a complete listing of our current fees and rebates, please see reception staff.
In order to run the most efficient allied health centre for our patients, a cancellation fee will be charged for patients who do not show for their appointments, or who cancel with less than 24 hours notice of the appointment time. You will be informed of this fee at the time you book your appointment. The fee is at the discretion of your treating allied health practitioner / natural therapist.
To be eligible for Medicare rebate, patients must meet all three basic criteria set out below:
1. Patients have a valid Medicare card
2. Patients fall under the eligible categories to enter into an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) scheme as determined by Medicare
3. The chosen allied health services are recognized by Medicare under the EPC scheme
For more information on EPC, and to determine your eligibility, please consult your doctor.
In order to claim your money back in a hassle-free manner from Medicare, we advise that you allow three working days from the consult with your practitioner before taking your service receipts into Medicare for processing.
Rebates from private health funds depend on your level and type of cover. For updated rebates claimable, please contact your health fund provider directly. Note that you can only claim from either Medicare or your private health fund, not both.
