Chronic Disease and Injury Rehabilitation - Rebates

Rehabilitation Sessions are exercise physiology based to support the body during injury or disese which are a delicate or fragile time. The sessions are complete with awareness and loving care for what you are experiencing in your body associated with your condition. An exercise program is recommended, that focus on the physical consequenses of your disease or injury, or side effects of any of your treatment and medication.  

Danielle is a recognised member of Exercise and Sports Sciences Australia (ESSA) accredited with the organisation in Exercise Physiology. She is also registered with Medicare, WorkCover and most major Private Health Funds for Exercise Physiology Services. All rehabilitation services are offered within the scope of practice of a registered Exercise Physiologist, as outlined by ESSA. No other services that Danielle offer (i.e. massage) are apart of the rehabilitation services and are only offered separately for those who choose.  

Medicare Care Plan Support

Having a long-term injury or disease can be an uncomfortable or difficult time in anyone's life. Often your whole life changes, in your ability to complete your work or home duties to maximum capacity and also in pressures that this can place within your family and other relationships. During these times it's important to get the best support you can, being as specific as you can in selecting the team of practitioners who support you.

The Australian Health Care and Medicare have developed a 'primary care plan' which is set up by your GP to bring together and monitor a group of practitioners to better support you. To benefit from Medicare support you must be referred from a GP to Danielle for Exercise Physiology Services and placed onto a Enhanced Primary Care Plan. To be eligible for a Care Plan you must have a chronic disease or injury. You and your GP will then determine practitioner support for you and your body, which may involve up to five therapy sessions within any allied health profession (i.e Exercise Physiology, Physiotherapy, Dietetics, Psychology etc). Each of the five sessions will receive approximately $50 rebate from medicare. Individuals with diabetes are eligible for 10 group exercise training groups. 

WorkCover

Sustaining an injury at work, that influences your ability to work can be a very difficlt or sometimes depressing time in one's life. On top of the work, personal and family changes in what you are capable of completing, there are also many requirements you must meet with WorkCover to get continued support. These requirements can feel somewhat demanding and sometimes place even greater stress on you mentally, emotionally and physically. Danielle recognises the difficulties of the WorkCover system, and works with you as best as she can to help support you and your body physically and sometimes with a lot of moral support.

A referral from a GP and an approval from your insurance company is necessary to receive any financial support for exercise physiology services to support you and your body to heal and recover from a workplace injury. In many instances Danielle can organise insurance approval, but will just need the referral from your nominated treating Dr under WorkCover.
