Do you need a referral to see our Podiatrists?

No not necessarily, although our clinic is private our patients and clients are able to claim on the spot through the HICAPS system for their private health insurance (if covered for Podiatry).

Our services also cater for returned soldiers and their widows on behalf of the Department of Veterans Affairs (gold card holders). These individuals do require a referral from their General practitioners who fill out a DVA specific form (D904 form) before consultation.

Currently Medicare provide subsides and rebates for allied health visits to patients with chronic and complex conditions (such as diabetes, chronic arthritis or cataracts) who are being managed by their general practitioners under a Chronic Disease Management.
