Medicare Chronic Disease Management Plans
(formerly Enhanced Primary Care Plan)
The Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) program allows chronically ill people who are being managed by their GP under a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan access to Medicare rebates for allied health services.
These items were designed to improve care of patients with chronic conditions and complex care needs by funding a limited number of allied health services for patients in the EPC program.
Patients on a CDM Plan
Southern Districts Sports Physiotherapy accepts referrals under the CDM BUT DOES NOT BULK BILL THESE ITEMS. Patients on a CDM plan are required to make full payment following each consultation. Patients will be then supplied with a full sales receipt which they forward onto Medicare for reimbursement (approx. 75% of fee).
If you have a Medicare CDM referral, this must be presented at the time of your first consultation.
