CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT PLANS AND TEAM CARE ARRANGEMENTS
If you have certain chronic health conditions you may be eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan. This is a health summary done by our GPs that summarises your health conditions and what the current management plan is.If you would like to find out if you are eligible please discuss it with your GP.
Under certain circumstances, after having a chronic disease management plan done, you may also be eligible for a Team Care Arrangement. This is a bulk billed document that allows you access for up to 5 allied health visits such as podiatrist, physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, occupational therapist, dietician or diabetes educator.
Please note that we may be unable to deal with a specific health concern at the same time as doing a Chronic Disease Management Plan or Team Care Arrangement, and may have to rebook another appointment. If you are coming in for either of these please let the reception staff know.
