I believe in being open and honest with you about my consult fees and the rebates that you can claim.
To provide a quality service and a client-centred approach, all my sessions are 50 minutes in length.
Note from the 1st July 2021, my fees will be as follows:
|Consult||Fee||Medicare Rebate *|
|Private Health Rebate|
|$54.60 *||Check with your fund|
Check with your fund
At the time of booking you will be asked to enter in your debit/credit card details into the secure encrypted Halaxy System so that I can process the payment automatically online during your session time. If you are eligible for a Medicare rebate, then this will be processed at the time of payment. We will provide you with a receipt for you to claim any Private Health fund rebates.
* Medicare Rebates
If your doctor has referred you on a GP Management Plan you will be able to claim a Medicare rebate. The current rebate (2021) is approximately $54.60 each session, for up to 5 sessions per calendar year. The number of sessions to see a Dietitian will be determined by your referring GP. Examples of conditions that may qualify for a Chronic Disease Management Plan include:
- Diagnosed Eating disorder
- Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Musculoskeletal conditions
For confirmation, if you qualify, please discuss with your GP.
* Medicare rebates for eating disorder treatment
Some clients who have a diagnosed eating disorder AND who meet the eligibility criteria, can access up to 20 visits per year to see a Dietitian, under the new Medicare Eating Disorder Management Plan (EDP). This means that you will get the medicare rebate (as above) back after you pay the full appointment fee.
Please check with your GP or psychiatrist to see if you qualify.
(Note: If not eligible for an EDP, you may still be eligible for a Medicare Rebate under a GP Management Plan).
Private Health Insurance Rebates
Depending on your private health fund, you may be eligible for a rebate under Private Health Insurance (not to be used in addition to Medicare). If you are using Private Health Insurance the rebate amount will depend on your particular fund and your level of cover. If unsure, just give your health fund a call to find out if you are covered for dietetics and what percentage of the consult will be covered. The Item code is 600 for initial consults and 500 for review consults.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we respectfully request AT LEAST 24 hours notice.
Cancellation at late notice means we are unable to offer this appointment to another client who may be on a waiting list for an appointment.
The following Cancellation fees apply:
– If less than 24 hours notice given = 50% of the consultation fee
– Missed appointments with no notice = 100% of the consultation fee
We understand that you may not be able to keep an appointment due to a sudden illness or an unexpected personal emergency. If this does occur, please let us know as soon as possible.
