Medicare and DVA
Sole Focus Podiatry treats patients referred by their GP under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC).
If you have a current care plan in place, you are entitled to receive a rebate from Medicare for up to 5 visits per calendar year to Allied Health Professionals. If all allocated visits are not used within one calendar year, this can flow over and still be valid in the following year.
To be eligible for the EPC plan, your General Practitioner must assist you in managing chronic medical conditions. If you feel that you may be eligible to receive benefits under this scheme, please discuss with your GP or Medicare.
The Department of Veterans Affairs allows some individuals to have access to ongoing podiatry care at no cost to the individual if they have a Repatriation Health Card.
At Sole Focus Podiatry, we provide routine maintenance, physical therapy, biomechanical evaluation, footwear prescription and modification, as well as most of our other services to clients covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
If you have a DVA Gold Card, the Department of Veterans Affairs will pay for podiatry services that are available through the DVA scheme.
Prior to treatment you will need a current DVA referral (D904) from your General Practitioner to see the podiatrist. This needs to be brought into the clinic or the treatment cannot be claimed and full payment will need to be made. A DVA referral from your GP is valid for 1 year and can be renewed annually.
