 A referral is NOT necessary to see us although it may help us to understand your dietary needs and health background. Medicare initiatives provide rebates for visits to manage chronic health conditions under a care plan coordinated by a general practitioner (GP). This care plan is known as the GP Management Plan (GPMP) and Team Care Arrangement (TCA). Medicare rebates are available. Allied providers are also available to consult with WorkSafe, TAC, DVA and private patients may be able to claim a rebate through their private health fund if applicable.
