Medicare funded services

Individuals may access allied health services under Medicare if they have a chronic (or terminal) medical condition and a GP has provided a chronic disease management plan.  The GP must provide the referral for the relevant allied health services. The number of Medicare subsidised visits for any particular allied health service is limited to a maximum of five consultation/sessions per calendar year.  

That means you can request a referral for any of our allied health and therapy services from your GP.
