Referrals

For private fee clients a medical referral is not required to see a physiotherapist. Clients who are eligible for Compulsory Third Party (CTP) or Workcover funding, you must provide a medical referral (general practitioner, sports physician, orthopaedic surgeon) for treatment, as part of the claims process. However, there are certain other conditions that must be met before a third party can be billed/pay for your appointment. Clients issued with Gold/White cards from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) may be eligible for subsidised treatment when presenting with an appropriate medical referral, within the previous twelve months (in accordance with current DVA policy). Clients wishing to receive allied health services under a Medicare Australia subsidised plan must have current Medicare Australia coverage, their Medicare card must in date and they will require referral from their treating general practitioner. There are other specific conditions that must be met to access Medicare rebate.

Billing and accounts

It is a requirement that all fees are paid at the time of consultation. We accept cash, cheques, EFTPOS, credit cards (excluding American Express and Diners). If you have private health insurance, you will need to provide your membership card on the day of service in order to receive an on-the-spot rebate. If for some reason your account is outstanding, at the end of each month a fully itemised account will be issued, with payment terms strictly 7 days. Failure to render full payment within these terms will result in your account being referred to a collection agency. Any additional debt recovery costs will be added to your account.

Cancellation policy

To assist in reminding you of your appointments PhyxMe can supply you with an appointment card and/or a SMS message reminder to your mobile (optional). A 24-hour cancellation policy applies to your consultation appointment times. Failure to provide 24 hours notice when changing appointments will result in a $45 fee. This fee will be charged to your account and will need to be paid prior to subsequent appointments. If you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment, the practice will, when able, provide you with an alternative appointment time on your scheduled day of service, so as to avoid a cancellation fee being charged.

Late and missed appointments

Clients arriving late to an appointment, but within their appointed time slot, may receive a shorter consultation in an effort not to inconvenience other clients waiting. These shorter consultations as well as missed appointments, are charged at the full consultation fee.

Workers compensation claims

Clients who believe they are eligible for Workcover funding must ensure they satisfy the following criteria before requesting third party billing: 1) The injury occurred directly in relation to their current gainful employment 2) The injury has been reported to their employer and all necessary internal paperwork has been completed 3) You have seen an appropriate medical officer (general practitioner, sports physician, orthopaedic surgeon) and have been referred to physiotherapy. At your initial consultation, please present the following to our administration staff: 1) A referral from your medical officer 2) Employer's name and contact details 3) Your employer’s insurance company name 4) Your insurance claim number (if it has been provided). In the case of Workcover/CTP claims, the individual client will always be ultimately responsible for payment of all accounts, in the event the involved Insurer does not accept financial liability for our services provided. We reserve the right to discontinue providing treatment through Workcover/CTP funding if we feel a claimant is acting fraudulently or demonstrating non-compliance.

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Claims

Clients who believe they are eligible for Compulsory Third Party Insurance funding must ensure they satisfy the following criteria before requesting third party billing: 1) The injury occurred directly in relation to a motor vehicle accident 2) The injury has been reported to the police and all necessary paperwork has been completed 3) You have seen an appropriate medical officer (general practitioner, sports physician, orthopaedic surgeon) 4) A claim number has been issued to you by the involved insurance company. At your initial consultation, please present the following to our administration staff: 1) A referral form from your medical officer 2) Your CTP Insurance company name and the claim number that has been provided to you. The individual client will be required to pay all consultation fees involved until the claimant has been issued and verified by the relevant CTP insurance company. We reserve the right to discontinue providing treatment through Workcover / CTP funding if we feel a claimant is acting either fraudulently or demonstrating non-compliance.

Refunds
