Why People Choose Us?
As Podiatrists, we are trained to assess, diagnose and treat foot and lower limb problems. These may include skin and nail problems, foot and ankle injuries, foot complications related to diabetes and other medical conditions and problems with gait or walking.
No. Of course it is possible that your GP refers you to us, but it is not a requirement. The majority of our patients self-refer due to a podiatric concern.
Note: the exception to this is for patients who are referred to us as part of the Enhanced Primary Care Program Allied Health Professionals, as part of Medicare.
For patients holding a Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC), we charge a reduced rate. As at May 2023, our current fee is $72 for patients holding an EPC.
Of that, Medicare will rebate back $58 i.e. the patient is out of pocket for $14. Provided you are in possession of your Medicare card and a debit card (i.e. linked to a bank account), we are able to process the rebate for you on the spot.
Enhanced Primary Care Programs are prescribed by the patient’s GP, and are typically given due to a chronic health condition.
Yes – provided you have podiatry as part of your ancillary (extras) cover. We are preferred providers for BUPA, Medibank and HCF. Your individual level of cover will vary depending on your plan. We are able to process the claims on-site via HICAPs.
Yes. For holders of a valid pensioner’s card, we charge the same fee for a general treatment as those holding a Medicare EPC. Currently, that fee is $70.
Note: All fees are subject to annual review from 1 July.
