Professional Fees, Health Insurance & Medicare
A medical referral is not required to visit a podiatrist.
However, if you are seeking cover under DVA or Medicare, a GP referral is necessary.
Podiatry services are covered under most Private Health Insurance “Extras” funds, and we can provide you with a receipt for you to make your claim. (Please check with your health fund to determine your level of cover for podiatry services)
- Clients of the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) with a Gold Card or podiatry-related White Card are fully covered with no out-of-pocket expenses when referred by their GP.
- Medicare rebatesare available for a maximum of 5 podiatry services per patient in a calendar year.These rebates are available to patients that have a chronic condition and complex care needs being managed by their GP under an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan. If you have diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or other chronic foot conditions please discuss your eligibility to access this program with your podiatrist and your GP.
