Bulk billed podiatry

Entire Podiatry currently offers BULK BILLED podiatry services to eligible patients at all of our clinic locations.

What is bulk billed podiatry?

Bulk billed podiatry is when the podiatrist accepts the rebate offered by Medicare as the full fee for service, so that there is NO GAP fee for patients.

The Medicare rebate applies only to the consultation fee, and any additional services will incur an out-of-pocket expense. For example, footwear modifications, orthotics and minor surgical procedures that may be recommended by your Podiatrist are not covered by Medicare.

Am I eligible for bulk billed podiatry through Medicare?

In order to receive a Medicare rebate for podiatry services, you need to obtain a valid referral for podiatry from your doctor, as part of a GP Management Plan (GPMP) under Team Care Arrangements (TCAs). This is generally put in place if your GP identifies that you have a chronic medical condition or complex care needs, in which case you may benefit from having one of these plans developed.

The terminology can be confusing! If you would like more information, you may like to read this patient information sheet published by the Department of Health (it’s only 2 pages long!).

Can I attend for bulk billed podiatry at any time?

Our Easy T clinic at Robina offers bulk billed appointments through Medicare under a care plan referral, if eligible, until 5pm on weekdays.  There is no out of pocket fee or gap payment.

At all other clinics, our bulk billed appointments are available from 8am until 3pm on weekdays. If you wish to attend an appointment outside of these hours, you can still receive the Medicare rebate, however, you will need to pay the full consultation fee and then claim the Medicare rebate.  This process can all be done easily at the clinic without the need to go to Medicare.

All our Podiatrists offer bulk billing through Medicare, with the exception of Chris Hope who does not bulk bill through Medicare. If you would like your appointment to be bulk billed, please speak with our reception staff to ensure an appropriate booking has been made for you.
