Private Health Fund and Medicare Rebates
If you have private health insurance which includes podiatry cover, you may be able to claim some of the cost of the consultation through them. This can be done conveniently at the practice through our HiCaps system. This is a simple way to claim the benefit via your health fund so you only have to pay the gap. Some special procedures we may use can also be covered by your health fund but may depend upon your level of cover. It is best to check with your health fund prior to your appointment however the costs of any procedures or treatments will be discussed with you prior to them being carried out.
You may have been recommended to see us by your G.P. to provide an opinion and management plan for your condition which in some cases, they may have provided you with an Enhanced Primary Care plan (EPC). This particular referral is available for Podiatry at your Doctor’s discretion for chronic conditions and can help to cover some of the costs of the consultation.
If you have any queries about the cost of an appointment please feel free to contact one of our friendly staff who will be more than happy to discuss this with you.
