This depends. If you want to claim a Medicare rebate for your consultation with one of the medical doctors at the clinic, you will need a referral from your GP or another medical specialist.
If you have a chronic disease, your GP can also refer you to allied health practitioners at our clinic, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, and dietitians. They do this by completing a GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangement. This means a certain number of consultations annually will be part-funded by Medicare.
You also have the option of self-referring and for allied health consultations, your private health fund may contribute to the cost of the visit.
