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 they are covered for Podiatry).

Our services also cater for returned soldiers and their widows on behalf of the Department of Veterans Affairs (gold card holders). However, these patients do require a GP referral who will complete 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 GP under a Chronic Disease Management plan.
