How do I get bulk billed visits to see a Physiotherapist?
Can I get up to 5 bulk-billed sessions with an Allied Health Professional?
The answer is YES, you can. If you have a Chronic Condition or Disease (had for over 6 months or going to have for over 6 months) you may be entitled to 5 services per calendar year under Medicare.
Medical Conditions include:
- Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)
- Musculoskeletal Conditions (e.g. Arthritis, Lower Back Pain, Shoulder Pain)
- Long-Term Injuries
What do you need to do?
What you do is see your GP to check if you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan or Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan. If you are eligible, your GP will write you a referral for Exercise Physiology or Physiotherapy for the number of services they feel appropriate. Then you will need to visit the care plan nurse to arrange your treatment plan.
Once complete, bring the Referral form into an Allied Health clinic offering Exercise Physiology and Physiotherapy and you will receive 1-5 bulk-billed sessions with NO GAP (depending on the clinic).
