Do I need a referral?
As Osteopaths are primary care practitioners, you can make an appointment directly without a referral. However there are exceptions; including if you are a DVA cardholder, under the CDM (EPC) program, or a Work Safe patient requiring an initial certificate for time off work. If you’re not sure it’s best to call us beforehand and explain your circumstances.
Is treatment covered by Private Health Insurance, Medicare, Work Safe, TAC or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs?
Generally yes but again it depends on your individual circumstances, as well as the practitioner you see in our centre. Give us a call to check.
