Are Podiatrists Bulk Billed?

Generally podiatrists do not bulk bill appointments, however there are exceptions. In some cases your health fund may cover the entire appointment cost leaving you with no gap to pay. The other case is in regards to care plans prescribed by your General Health Practitioner.

Here at Active Care Podiatry we accept the Medicare Rebate as full payment for your appointment. This involves billing the amount first then having the same amount rebated back onto a suitable card. This can only be done if an appropriate care plan has been given to you by a doctor.

If you or your GP wishes you to see a podiatrist in regards to a chronic condition call our clinic at (07) 3823 5423 to determine whether it will be suitable.
