Your rebated amounts will depend on your chosen level of cover with your private health fund. Below we have the claiming codes for you to ring up your fund provider and find out how much you can claim.
A lot of people don't know that you can swap your extras around as you need. For example - if you chose Dentist and Physiotherapy, you can most likely ring up and ask to have this changed to Dietitian and Exercise Physiology.
When you need to use it for a different service, you simply change it back.
Your claiming codes:
Initial Consultation: Code 102
Standard Consultation: Code 202
Extended Consultation: Code 302
Standard Consultation requiring travel (for mobile visits): Code 402
Group Sessions: Code 502
Individual Initial Consultation: Code 500
Review Individual Consultation: Code 600
Group Consultation: Code 700
If you have a diagnosed Chronic Disease for 6 months or longer, you may be eligible for a Medicare rebated care plan.
Known as the Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) also known as the Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDMP).
This referral will give you up to five rebated visits to an Allied Health Professional in one calendar year.
These services are not just for a Dietitian, they also cover Exercise Physiology, Psychology and Podiatry.
Sessions do not roll over to the next calendar year, and you cannot use Medicare rebates simultaneously with Private Health rebates.
How it works - Medicare have strict guidelines for payments and rebate processing.
Some locations require a small gap payment.
The patient must pay the FULL fee BEFORE Medicare will pay the rebate.
The amount that would be refunded to you is 53.80. We do offer BULK BILL at selected locations only or by request of the referring GP.
