Are You Eligable to Claim Medicare Here?

Enhanced Primary care, or Chronic Disease Management is a medicare rebate available for a maximum of five (5) services per patient each calendar year.

Your GP will determine whether your chronic medical condition would benefit from osteopathy services.

A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. It includes, but is not limited to, conditions such as asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.

Medicare pays a rebate of $52.95 and there is usually a small gap to be paid to the Osteopath. 

There is a fact sheet available at the Department of Health and Ageing Website, or speak to your GP to see if you can qualify.
