Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDM) or Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC):
An EPC or CDM is a particular plan that can be given to any individual with a chronic medical condition. For the condition to be classified as chronic it must have been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. The plan means that up to 5 visits with us, can be mostly covered by medicare. However there is a $10 gap per visit for normal appointments. If you have a complex problem or multiple areas that require a longer appointment a gap of $20 will be charged. All we need is a copy of your EPC, Team Care Arangement and GP Management Plan either brought in by you or sent to us by your doctor.
We regularly see patients who are covered under workcover. All we require is your claim number, insurance details and a copy of your current workcover certificate. You will also be required to complete some paperwork which will include information about your date of injury, details of your employer at the time of injury and claim manager details. If for any reason your insurance agency does not pay your account you will be obligated to settle any oustanding amounts yourself.
Motor Vechicle Accident (MVA):
we also see patients who are covered under MVA. For MVA patients we require your claim number and insurance details. However, if for any reason your insurance agency does not pay your account you will be obligated to settle any oustanding amounts yourself.
Deparment of Veterans Affairs (DVA):
Veterans who carry a DVA white or gold card can have the price of their appointments covered by Veterans Affairs. All that is needed is a D904 referral from your doctor before treatment can begin.
