questions for your physiotherapist

Pricing fees and rebates

HICAPS instant rebates

Rather than submitting an online claim, or lining up at a Medicare branch to lodge your claim in person, with HICAPS you can claim the benefits you’re entitled to on the spot at your healthcare provider when you make a payment

Referral requirements

In general patients do not need a referral to see one of our practitioners, but they do need one to attract a relevant Medicare rebate. And, yes Physiotherapy can be covered by Medicare so long as it’s a chronic and complex musculoskeletal condition requiring specific treatment under a CDM (Chronic Disease Management). Under the CDM plan, a chronic condition refers to an issue that has been or is expected to be present for at least six months.

To enquire about your eligibility for a CDM, please make an appointment with your GP and then contact Bodyworks Physiotherapy for an appointment. You will need to pay for your appointment, and we will submit your claim on your behalf, and you will receive a rebate of $55.10 as at September 2022 for up to 5 sessions.

Fees and Prices

Bodyworks Physiotherapy has a tiered pricing structure such that the principal physiotherapist (Natalie Perkins), with over 20 years experience commands a slightly higher fee. She specialises in complex conditions.

Bodyworks Physiotherapy fees are very competitive with the general market and extremely good value when you consider that you are with your therapist one to one for hands-on treatment for the duration of your time and not merely connected to a series of machines!

Work cover injuries

Work cover Injuries

All our Physiotherapists are trained and accredited to treat under the Workers Compensation scheme. We ensure we take the time to understand the nature and effects of each injury and what is required to get each individual back to work.
We understand the rules and procedures associated with Workers Compensation Insurance Claims and can help make the process easy, so please contact us and we can talk you through the best steps to the best treatment process.

CTP Third Party

At Bodyworks, we perform thorough assessments for accident victims to determine what injuries you have sustained, both for the pain and discomfort you feel now and for the problems you don’t currently see and feel.

We also have extensive experience working with insurance companies to properly notify them of the scope of your injuries and the course of action required in order to properly treat and correct those injuries.
