The Medicare rebate is available for a maximum of five services per patient per calendar year although if all services are not used during the calendar year in which the patient was referred, then the unused services can be used in the next calendar year.
Unfortunately additional services under this rebate in the same calendar year are not possible in any circumstances. While the Medicare rebate covers most of the cost, there is still an out-of-pocket fee that will have to be covered. Please call our team to have this clarified before conducting your first session.
It is important to note that patients must have a GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangements prepared by your GP, or be residents of a residential aged care facility who are managed under a multidisciplinary care plan.
