What do I need to bring to my appointment?
You should wear clothing that allows your Physiotherapist to properly assess your injury and that you feel comfortable in (e.g. if you have a knee injury shorts or pants that roll up easily or a shoulder injury may be easier accessed in a singlet). If you have had any imaging done prior to your appointment (X-rays, MRIs, CT’s, ultrasounds etc.) please bring these reports along as well. Also if you are taking any current medications or tablets it may be useful to write them down on a sheet of paper and bring to your initial session.
Do we bulk bill appointments?
We are not a bulk billing practice.
Am I eligible for a Medicare rebate with a GP referral for an (EPC) or team care arrangement?
If you comply with the following criteria you may be eligible to receive either physiotherapist or exercise physiologist via Medicare.
• You already have, or have the potential of developing; one chronic medical condition or complex care needs
• You require the care from a GP, and least two additional health professionals or care providers
• If you are managed by their GP through an EPC
Once on an Enhanced Primary Care Plan, your GP can refer you for up to five Physiotherapy or Exercise Physiologist sessions (or possibly a mixture) per year.
Do I have to pay for my Medicare EPC Physiotherapy/ Exercise physiologist appointments?
There is a gap of $15 for all Physiotherapy appointments through the EPC program, the remainder of this is issued as a rebate via Medicare.
This rebate is processed much faster if the payment received by ourselves is via a savings/debit card account; this method will allow a direct rebate into your bank account (minus the gap fee) which usually takes 1-2 days. If you pay by credit card or cash you will need to take your receipt to a Medicare branch for the rebate (minus the gap fee) to be processed.
If you have an appointment to see a physiotherapist under a Medicare EPC referral please remember to bring your Medicare card to each session

With Physiotherapy and massage there may be an expected amount of mild post-treatment soreness, however many people do not report this and are likely to feel better following each session. Your physiotherapist will discuss with you if any techniques perform may be likely to produce this effect or cause any pain at all. Feel free to discuss this further with your therapist.
