Private Health Insurance
At Southside Clinic, we have the HICAPS facility, where patients with health fund ‘extras’ have their rebate directly debited from their fund, and they only have to pay the ‘gap’ amount. The amount that your fund gives you differs between funds and levels of cover, so you would need to check with your own fund about how much they offer towards your Osteopathy and Nutrition consultations.
A medicare rebate is offered for part of the cost of Osteopathic treatment for patients on Chronic Disease Management Plans. You need a referral from your GP to be eligible for this, and you may be entitled to up to 5 treatments per year, partly covered by Medicare.
Osteopaths are approved providers for Return To Work SA (previously WorkCoverSA). For ReturnToWorkSA claims, you will need approval from your case manager for Osteopathy care, as well as details of your case managers name and phone number and your case number.
