Being in Australia we are lucky in the wide range of funding options available to us to help with our healthcare needs. If you are unsure what options may be available to you please read below and if you need any clarification please reach out to one of our team members for help.
Funding and Programs
Did you know many Private Health Insurances cover Exercise Physiology?
Any clinical support and services performed by South West Health Management can be subsidised with a Health Fund Rebate using your private health insurance membership card. Simply swipe your membership card and your insurer will cover some or all of the cost and you can cover the gap using your credit card, debit card or cash.
Not all health funds will provide cover for Exercise Physiology. Check with your health fund to see if you are covered.
Medicare and DVA
If you are seeking treatment via DVA or Medicare please read below.
There are a range of funding options available depending on your situation. Please ensure you have a relevant referral from your doctor which is directed to South West Health Management to ensure you can receive the rebate available to you.
If you have a chronic disease / medical condition you may be eligible for the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan which is bulk billed under Medicare Australia. This enables you to receive a rebate on up-to 5 Allied Health sessions per calendar year.
Funding may also be available for veterans who have a referral from their medical practitioner, medical specialist or hospital discharge planner which includes a diagnosis informing us of the patient’s condition requiring clinically necessary treatment.
Veterans must also hold a DVA Health Card (Gold Card or White Card) where the referral for treatment relates to a war-caused or service-related condition accepted by DVA.
