Rebates

There are a number of ways you may be able to claim back our fees.

Private Health Fund: The majority of private health funds in Australia cover podiatry. Using the HICAPS online claiming system available at Ned Buckley Podiatry, you can receive your private health insurance rebate instantly.

Veterans’ Affairs: Our podiatrists are registered to provide services for veterans, including treatment, biomechanical assessment, prescription orthotics and footwear referrals.

Medicare: The Medicare Plus Program provides limited cover for patients with chronic and complex conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, etc. A referral and a Chronic Disease Management Plan from a GP is necessary for up to 5 visits per year for those patients who fulfill the criteria. For further information, visit the Department of Human Services’ Chronic Disease Management Plans webpage.

Workers Compensation: If your foot-related injury or accident happened at work, workers compensation may help. Pre-approval is required for all workers compensation cases.
