Do I need a referral?

If you need to make any changes to or cancel your appointment, it is our policy that you provide at least 24 hours’ notice if possible, otherwise a cancellation fee may be applied.
Will my appointment be covered under my private health insurance?
This will depend on your policy. Most policies with extras cover will provide a rebate for Physiotherapy, Clinical Pilates and Myotherapy / Remedial Massage. At Flex Sports Physiotherapy you can process your health claim immediately in the clinic using HICAPS.
Does Medicare cover my treatment?
Medicare does not generally cover Physiotherapy, Myotherapy, Remedial Massage or Clinical Pilates. However, the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) scheme now permits your GP to request up to five subsidise Allied Health services per year on referral. Please discuss this option with either your Physiotherapist or GP.
Do you treat Workcover and TAC patients?
Yes we do, however Workcover and TAC may only partially cover the cost of services at this clinic and patients are required to have a referral from their treating doctor.
All patients are responsible for the full payment of their consultation. You will be provided with a receipt that you can present for reimbursement with your third party insurer.
