Medicare Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDMP)
If your child is diagnosed with a chronic health condition, he/she may be eligible to claim Medicare rebates under the Chronic Disease Management Plan for up to 5 sessions of physiotherapy per calendar year. The need for physiotherapy must be directly related to your child’s condition.
To be able to access the Medicare benefits scheme, speak to your GP to find out if your child qualifies. You will also need to get a referral from your GP and bring it along to your appointment. We will set up a receipt after your consultation that has all the relevant information for you to get a rebate back from Medicare. Unfortunately at Stepping Forward Therapy Services, we do not bulk bill.
If you would like more information, please speak to one of our friendly staff who will be able to assist you with your enquires.
