Enhanced Primary Care (EPC)

What is an Enhanced Primary Care physiotherapy appointment? Do I qualify?

The EPC allows General Practitioners (GP) to organise the health care of patients with chronic conditions.  A GP can allocate a total of 5 sessions per person, per calendar year which Medicare will help fund. Health providers who can provide sessions include physiotherapists and dieticians.

How much do the EPC physiotherapy appointments cost?

If you have received an EPC from your GP, you can receive medical rebates when you have an appointment. PhysioSport can assist you with injury recovery, but our physiotherapy services are NOT covered completely by bulk billing schemes. This means you will have to pay the difference between the fee charged and the Medicare rebate.

 

$105 for your first EPC physio appointment - $52.95 Medicare rebate = $52.05 fee to be covered by patient.

$85 subsequent EPC physio appointment - $52.95 Medicare rebate = $32.05 fee to be covered by patient.

Who can qualify for CDM?

Patients who have both a valid Medicare card and a chronic medical condition are eligible. A chronic medical condition is one that has been present for at least six months. Examples of chronic conditions can include, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions, and stroke. You must see a GP who must complete a GP management plan and team care arrangements for you.
