All practices offer HICAPS services – the online system linking to your private health fund, providing instant reimbursement for a component of the consultation fee. Unfortunately, the HICAPS terminal does not allow us to always claim the cost of splints and aids, these items must be claimed directly with your health fund.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Eftpos and cash. It is requested that all private accounts be settled on the day of your appointment, although direct funds transfer is accepted upon request
Your hand therapist is either a qualified Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist. It is possible that your private health fund will reimburse you different amounts depending on your treating therapist’s profession. Please discuss your level of cover with your insurer if you have any queries.
Some people with chronic conditions will receive a partial payment from Medicare for up to 5 visits per year under the Chronic Disease Management Program. Please speak to your GP to discuss whether you are eligible, and request the appropriate referral.
