Patients are able to claim rebates for their appointment on-the-spot at our practice using HICAPS Services. The rebate amount for an initial consultation varies substantially between health funds. Some funds pay out 100% of appointment fees, whereas most funds cover only a portion of this fee ($30.00-$60.00 rebated on average).
A doctor’s referral is not required in order to book an appointment at Perth Podiatric Surgery, unless a patient is being referred for opinion under a Medicare care plan by their GP.
What to bring to your appointment:
Your Private Health Fund Card – this is important for on-the-spot claiming purposes.
Your Medicare Card – this is important if any hospital-based surgery is required.
A list of medication you are taking – this is very important for treatment planning.
Any relevant scans such as x-rays, ultrasounds or MRIs.
- A referral letter if you have been provided with one by your GP, podiatrist or physiotherapist.
