Did you know that Health Associates bulk bills for chiropractic and podiatry services under the chronic disease management plan?
What is the Chronic Disease Management Plan? (formally Enhanced Primary Care)
People with a chronic medical condition may be able to get Medicare benefits to cover allied health services that help manage their condition.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been, or is likely to be, present for at least 6 months. Anyone with a chronic or terminal medical condition can have a GP Management Plan in place.
A referral under the CDM plan can entitle you to up to 5 visits in a 12 month period.
Health Associates CDM Policy
From the 1st of May Health Associates new CDM policy will be effective for all new or renewed referrals.
At Health Associates we believe that high quality allied healthcare should be accessible for all facets of the community.
We provide bulk billed CDM plans when referred by your GP for pensioners and health care card holders. To be eligible for bulk billed services the patient must present with a current pensioner or health care card.
Seniors and concessions receive a 10% discount off services in the clinic. When visiting under a CDM this discount will be applied to the full amount then reduced by the medicare rebate. A gap payment will be payable.
All other referrals will be required to pay the full gap payment.
