Osteopathy & Exercise Physiology Now Rebated Through the Medicare Benefits Schedule
31st January 2013
Recent changes to the medicare system allow for significant rebates for osteopathic treatments. Under the “Medicare Benefits Schedule or MBS” (Previously known as Enhanced Primary Care - EPC) you are entitled to receive up to five (5) partially rebated treatments per calendar year if you:
- have a chronic condition (have had it for at least a few months) and
- have been managed by your GP and one other Medicare-recognised practitioner and
- are given a doctor's referral for osteopathic services.
The rebate for Medicare's MBS is currently set at $52.95 per treatment. Please note that we do not bulk bill.
