Some people may wish to obtain a rebate for their allied health appointments. This is possible in one of two ways – through Private Health Insurance or a GP Management Plan (which is commonly called a “Care plan”)

What is a care plan?
You may qualify for a care plan with your GP. A care plan provides you with up to 5 sessions that are partially subsidized by medicare – you get about $55 back per session.

To be eligible for a care plan you need to have a chronic health condition (having a BMI > 30 qualifies or a BMI >27 with other health conditions) and be seeing at least 2 other health practitioners apart from your regular GP. Your Alevia GP, dietitian and exercise physiologist all qualify as team members.

You may be allocated up to 5 sessions per calendar year through a care plan. If you haven’t used any or all of your sessions, then you can ask your GP to allocate them to the Alevia allied health team. Their details can be found here.

If you have health insurance with extras, you may get a rebate back for either the dietitian, the exercise physiologist or both.

You can either bring in your health insurance card and we can process your rebate for you on the spot or we can provide you with an invoice and you can make a claim directly with your insurer.

Rebates can vary and depend on your insurer. Please check directly with your insurance provider.

You can choose to use one or the other but not both options to get a rebate.
