HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR THIS medicare chiropractic & DO I NEED Chronic Disease Management (CDM/EPC) PLAN?

To be eligible for Medicare Chiropractic you need a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) or Enhance Primary Care (EPC) Plan and you can get up to 5 visits covered by Medicare Rebate. In order to use medicare to pay for Chiropractic you must be referred by a General Practitioner (GP) to see a Chiropractor and have a CDM/EPC plan. To be eligible for this plan must be suffering from a chronic condition (a condition that has occurred for a period of 6 months or greater) or have numerous health issues.

Can Chiropractic care be claimed on medicare? The short answer is, YES! Up to 5 Chiropractic visits per calendar year can be partially claimed under the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plan (formerly known as EPC Plan)

Health issues can include:

*Note that these conditions cannot be treated by chiropractors*

The GP must fill out medicare forms 721 and 723. We will also require a copy of this also. The process can take up to 2 weeks to complete.

WELLBEING CHIROPRACTIC DO NOT CHARGE A GAP.
Some Chiropractors charge a gap payment. However; all of Wellbeing Chiropractic clinics do not charge a gap. Our goal is to make Chiropractic treatment as affordable as possible.

I’ve been accepted for my plan, how do I get my 5 visits?

Easy, once we have all required documents give us a call on 1300 123 365 and we can book your appointment today. We have same day appointments available Monday-Saturday, with early mornings and late evening appointments available. Or you can BOOK ONLINE

The rest is up to us, we put all the payment through our HICAPS machine so you don’t have to worry about anything else.

Can I use my 5 Medicare visits before they are accepted?

NO. You can only claim for visits after you have met with your GP and the process is accepted, unfortunately you are not allowed to claim retrospectively.

If any questions regarding this, talk to one of our chiropractors on 1300 123 365

Can I have more than 5 EPC visits per year?

For now, 5 is the limit. This resets each calendar year, so as long as your GP will keep referring you, you will keep receiving the 5 visits paid by medicare each year.

If your 5 visits aren’t used each calendar year you forfeit them!

I don’t know what to say to my GP, can you help me?

Yes, we can. One of our Chiropractors can meet with you and write a letter recommending you receive the 5 visits on the EPC Plan for you to hand to your GP. Your GP has the final say whether you are eligible for the Medical Rebate for Chiropractic Medicare Appointments.

Alternatively download and show them the letter in “STEP 1” above.
