Visiting Healthier You
You can visit Healthier You as a doctor’s referral, DVA patient or as a private client. No referral is necessary to visit Healthier You. Healthier You has a policy of bulk billing Medicare Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) visits and those with a DVA gold card. Most private health insurance schemes provide substantial rebates for dietitian services depending on your coverage.
We accept doctors’ referrals and bulk bill for referrals under the EPC scheme.
The EPC scheme provides 5 Medicare rebated visits to allied health professionals. This scheme is for people with a chronic illness such as diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol. To be eligible for this rebate your doctor must issue you with an EPC plan before your nutrition consultation. Please bring your EPC plan with you to your appointment.
At the completion of your EPC visit allocation, you qualify for the Healthier You Nutrition Care Plan. This provides ongoing nutritional-focus for the balance of the calendar year. More details are available from your Healthier You dietitian.
DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs)
We are a provider for DVA. If you have a gold card, please see your doctor for a D904 referral and your appointments will be covered in full by DVA.
You do not need a doctor’s referral to see us. As a private patient you will incur the consultation cost listed below. Most private health funds provide generous rebates for dietitians. The refund will be dependent on your level of cover. Please contact your health fund to enquire how much you can claim back.
We have a HICAPS machine at our main office so rebates can be claimed on the spot and you will only be required to pay the gap. At other locations, we will provide you with a receipt so you can claim back from your fund directly.
Initial consultation: $99.00
Follow up appointments: $65.00
After 5 consultations, you will also be provided a free shopping tour, a food label reading card and the opportunity to receive a Healthier You recipe book of your choice (a value of over $50). Your 10th consultation will attract no charge and a full set of Healthier You recipe books (a value of over $85).
