You’ve Got Questions - I’ve Got Answers
WILL MY INSURANCE COVER MY VISIT?
Yes, If you have private health insurance with Podiatry cover your visit will be covered to some extent, However you should contact your health fund before your appointment to make sure! To make things easy we have a HICAPs terminal onsite so you can claim instantly :D
DO YOU HAVE ANY BULK BILLED APPOINTMENTS?
Unfortunately due to the amount rebated by medicare for a podiatry appointment being less that the minimal cost of our appointments we no longer offer a bulk billing service. However our reception staff can process an online claim for you on the day of your appointment which will see the medicare rebate transferred into your nominated account within 48 hours leaving you with only a small out of pocket expense for your podiatry appointment. For more information regarding this please chat to our reception team at the time of booking your appointment.
DO I NEED A REFERRAL TO SEE A PODIATRIST?
No, you do not require a referral to see a podiatrist privately.
