Claiming Physiotherapy on Medicare
Medicare provides up to 5 Physiotherapy visits each year that you are able to claim if you are eligible.
If you suffer from a chronic condition for over 6 months duration, or have multiple health issues then you may qualify for the Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC) which is the program that can provide you with these 5 visits.
Ask your GP if you qualify. Your GP will then submit the required paperwork to Medicare for the 5 rebatable physiotherapy visits. Once we receive a copy of these forms that your GP will provide, we will add this information to your paid receipt that you can then submit to Medicare to receive your rebate.
If Medicare refuse to pay for your consultation(s) because your claim is finished or incomplete then you will need to check with your GP. We are unable to assist as it is a matter between your GP and Medicare. It has been our experience that the most common reason for refusal is the EPC paperwork not being submitted or received correctly.
