Medicare

Performance Podiatry treats patients referred by their GP under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC)/ Complex Disease Management Plan (CDMP). If you have a current care plan in place, you are entitled to receive a rebate from Medicare for up to 5 visits per calendar year to Allied Health Professionals. This rebate is approximately equivalent to $52. If all allocated visits are not used within one calendar year, this can flow over and still be valid in the following year.

To be eligible for the Complex Disease Management Plan, your General Practitioner must assist you in managing chronic medical conditions such as

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Mental Health Illness

If you feel that you may be eligible to receive benefits under this scheme, please discuss with your GP or Medicare.
