CLAIMING FROM MEDICAL INSURANCE

A Medicare rebate for seeing a dietitian is NOT an automatic bulk billing option in the same manner when seeing the GP.  You may submit the invoice to your Health Insurance, however it is best to contact your provider to ensure your policy or plan covers for Allied Health if you wish to make a claim.

 

DO I QUALIFY FOR A MEDICARE REBATE?

To obtain a Medicare rebate when seeing a Dietitian is only permitted if you have a care plan from your GP.  Please speak with your GP prior to your appointment, to determine if you are eligible. One can qualify for a care plan if you have a chronic disease, terminal illness or eating disorder.
