Medicare covers osteopathic treatment for chronic conditions for some people. A chronic condition is one that is more than 6 months duration. To access Medicare funded osteopathy you will need to speak to your GP about whether you are eligible for up to five discounted treatments each year. If eligible you must obtain a referral from your GP for an Enhanced Primary Health Care (EPC) plan.
For more information about the EPC program talk to your osteopath and your GP, go to the Medicare Australia website www.medicare.gov.au, or call Medicare Australia on: 132 011.
