Chronic Disease


Medicare funding is available to people who suffer from one or more chronic diseases to allow them access to Allied Health Professional services. 

A chronic disease is one that has been evident for six months or more and can include conditions such as asthma, diabetes, obesity,  heart disease and arthritis.

Referrals can be made for a maximum of five visits per year to participating providers including chiropractors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, dietitians, diabetic educators, and podiatrists.

Patients who feel they might benefit from such referrals must have a GP management plan in place first.   This service can be arranged at our practice after a brief consultation with your GP who may refer you to our onsite Chronic Disease Management Clinic.  This service is Bulk Billed for eligible patients.
