MEDICARE REFERRALS

Am I eligible for Medicare referrals?

At The Physio Rooms Woodvale, we accept all referrals under the Medicare Enhanced Primary Care Plan. This must be arranged through your GP. Patients eligible for the Medicare EPC Plan include those with chronic conditions and complex care needs, that have persisted or will persist for longer than six months, such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or diabetes. Your doctor will liaise with additional allied health professional to create a care plan that may include up to 5 physiotherapy sessions supported by Medicare per year.

What does a Medicare referral cover?

Once referred, your EPC can be used for a range of physiotherapy services. This may include manual physiotherapy treatment, hydrotherapy, balance and falls prevention, strength and rehabilitation, exercise prescription, and even weight loss advice and guidance. The Physio Rooms Woodvale prides itself on providing the best possible individual and tailored care for you.
