Chronic Disease Management (CDM) was formerly known as Enhanced Primary Care (EPC).
The Chronic Disease Program is a government incentive which allows individuals with a chronic medical illness or condition to receive Medicare rebates for a maximum of five (5) allied health services, such as physiotherapy, podiatry and exercise physiology, each calendar year.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, musculoskeletal conditions. There is no list of eligible conditions, however, the CDM items are designed for patients who require a structured approach, including those requiring ongoing care from a multi-disciplinary team.
Your GP will prepare a CDM plan and refer you to an allied health practitioner if you qualify for treatment.
Whether a patient is eligible for CDM services is a clinical judgement made by the GP, taking into account the patient’s medical condition and care needs, as well as the general guidance set out by Medicare.
with out-of-pocket costs counting towards the extended Medicare safety net.
We are able to process the Medicare rebate on the spot for you, so make sure to bring your card with you to each consultation.
If you prefer, you may opt to use Private Health Insurance, but then you cannot claim the CDM rebate as well.
with treatment (if required), however there will be no Medicare rebate for these treatments.
