Medicare rebates

Ways to get your medicare rebate:

Care plans and health assessments will continue to be bulk billed

Although we have changed consultation fees from 10 October 2016, it is very important that we continue to provide comprehensive care for people with chronic diseases.

So if you have a chronic disease, appointments with your doctor that are for care plan writing or care plan review will still be bulk billed. These appointments can be scheduled 2 to 4 times per year depending on complexity. Appointments with our nurses for chronic disease assessment (eg diabetes clinic) will also be bulk billed. Mental health plans and mental health plan reviews can be bulk billed.

The following are some examples of chronic diseases that may be eligible for care plan rebates:

Heart disease (eg heart attack, angina, stents or bypass surgery)
Atrial fibrillation, DVT and PE
Peripheral vascular disease
Any kind of cancer needing treatment or follow up
Chronic kidney disease
Liver disease or hepatitis
Coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease
Lung disease (eg COPD or emphysema)
Brain diseases such as dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease)
Chronic low back pain
Osteoarthritis affecting your health
Rheumatoid and other connective tissue diseases
Some long-term skin conditions
Childhood developmental delay
Mental health problems in all age groups
Palliative care

If you are not sure whether you are eligible, do ask your doctor or any of our clinical staff.

WorkCover and TAC

WorkCover rates apply to consultations about an injury that has occurred in the workplace.  Medicare does not rebate these consultations.

TAC rates apply to consultations about injuries that have been sustained in a road traffic accident.

Westcare requires patients to pay in full for their WorkCover or TAC consultation.  You can then seek reimbursement from the relevant insurance company or your employer.  There will be an out of pocket cost.

The employer should reimburse the first $642 of a WorkCover claim.

The first $599 of a TAC claim must be met by the patient (and you may receive a partial Medicare rebate for the services received).
