Funding and Rebates
As Accredited Exercise Physiologists are recognised Allied Health Professionals, there are a number of funding options available to access services.
National Disability Insurance Scheme:
If you are an NDIS participant, you may have funding in your NDIS plan which you can use to access Exercise Physiology services. If you are unsure or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Lauren.
Exercise Physiology services are currently funded under both Improved Daily Living, and Improved Health and Wellbeing. Exercise Physiology can also now be accessed through Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI).
Medicare Chronic Disease Management (previously known as Enhanced Primary Care Plan):
If a GP determines an individual eligible as having a chronic medical condition*, they may put together a care plan, which includes 5 visits to an allied health provider, such as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.
*A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. Speak to your GP if you are unsure, or want more information about eligibility.
Private Health Cover:
A number of private health funds offer rebate on Exercise Physiology services. Check with your private health insurer for more information.
Services are also offered to those paying privately, without external funding or rebates.
