Chronic Disease Management
(30-45 minute CONSULTATIONS - Similar to Bulk BILLING & NO GAP)
At Nutrition Simplified, we’re committed to empowering you with the right tools to help in the management of your chronic medical condition.
A Chronic Disease Management Plan arranged by your GP enables you to work with a Dietitian to help manage your chronic medical condition, such as asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions or stroke.
To be eligible for a Medicare rebate, you must be referred from a General Practitioner (GP) on a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plan (Item no. 10954 - Dietetics Services). The rebate entitles you to a maximum of five Allied Health Services per Calendar year.
The Medicare rebate for Dietetics services for those on CDM plans is $53.80, that will be processed on-spot electronically, if you have linked your bank account to your online Medicare account. Otherwise, you will need to claim with Medicare over the phone.
The total pre-rebate cost for all CDM plan consultations is $53.80, which is payable at the end of your consultation. Following your Medicare rebate being processed, your total out of pocket costs will be $0.
