Medicare: Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Program
Patients with complex and chronic conditions may be covered by Medicare for up to five physiotherapy treatments a year.
Complex and chronic may be defined as someone with one or more of:
- Multiple health problems
- Who are increasingly frail and dependent
- Who have unstable or deteriorating health
To be eligible for this your GP needs to place you on an Enhanced Primary Care Plan. To obtain your rebate through our Hicaps terminal, you will need an ATM card with either a cheque or savings account attached to it, and you must know your pin number. We then process through Medicare who directly deposits the rebate into your cheque/savings account on the spot. Or alternatively if you don’t possess an ATM card, you can present your receipt for payment to Medicare, either at their office or your local chemist.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing.
For treatments, please make the area of your body which needs treatment easy to access. Some areas require removal of some clothing. Gowns are available.
