Our Osteopaths are very much about deciphering the root cause of your puzzle.

If you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management plan from your GP then we are able to claim part of your fee for you on the spot with medicare. There will still be a gap to pay.
If you are covered for Osteopathy then absolutely. You are able to claim it directly at the clinic.
If you come as a private client you do not need a referral. However for Dept. Veterans Affairs or Medicare subsidised treatment with a CDM plan, a GP must provide us the correct documents.

We are here to set the record straight and provide you with resources and information to remove the confusion that exists for breastfeeding mothers. This naturally supports the treatment & education we provide our clients in clinic.
