Do I need a referral to see a physio?
|Anyone can see a physiotherapist without a referral. However, if you have a WorkCover injury or wish to claim through Medicare's EPC program or DVA, you will need a referral from your GP.|
What should I bring?
|Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time to complete some simple paperwork.
Useful things to bring if you have them include:
Do you bulk bill?
|For certain cases where a patient has been referred from their doctor, yes, we do bulk bill! |
We are one of the only physio practices in Newcastle to bulk bill Medicare's EPC program, meaning you can get up to 5 visits each calendar year without having to pay anything.
Standard visits are not bulk-billed, however we can swipe your health fund card through HICAPS so you will only have to pay a part of the full cost. WorkCover and DVA injuries are also bulk billed.
What should I expect on my first visit?
Do you open on weekends?
Yes, we are open on Saturday mornings from 9am - 1pm. We also have late appointments through the week to accommodate those who are busy during business hours.|
Our opening hours are:
Weekdays: 9.00am - 6.00pm
Later appointments may also be available on request
How much does it cost?
|Prices as at April 2015:|
Initial Consultation - $75.00
Standard Consultation - $62.00
These prices are up to $30 cheaper than other physio practices in Newcastle!
Note: If you are referred for a WorkCover or DVA injury, or have a care plan from your doctor, your sessions will be bulk-billed, meaning you won't have to pay anything.
How do I pay?
|At Fix It Physiotherapy we are registered with HICAPS, which means if you have a health fund, you can swipe your card to instantly claim your benefits. For any gap payment or if you are not covered by a health fund, you can pay by cash, Bank Card, Visa or Mastercard.|
