Medicare provides some cover for five treatments per calendar year for chronic conditions (problems you have had for at least six months or problems that are likely to last more than six months). This is available to everyone, including those who already have private health insurance.
You will be required to make a co-payment at the time of treatment:
$55.00 for the initial consultation,
$20.00 for subsequent consultations
What you need to do:
Obtain a referral form for Individual Allied Health Services from your GP. Make sure that you let them know it's for chiropractic treatment and the details of your chiropractor (see below). Please remember to take your referral and your Medicare card to your chiropractic appointment.
For any questions about the types of conditions that can be managed with chiropractic treatment or to make an appointment, please contact:
