How to claim:   You will be issued with a receipt after the appointment at Colour City Medical Practice in Orange, that you can submit to your private health fund. I do have HICAPS available at my Dubbo practice and your claim will processed on the spot.

DVA (Department of Veterans Affairs)

I am a provider for the Department of Veterans Affairs. If you have a Gold card or relevant condition under other card types, you will not have to pay for your visit. Home visits can also be arranged if necessary.

Worker’s Compensation and General Insurance Claims

While Dietetics isn’t a standard provider for Worker’s Compensation claims, I do provide dietary management and support for clients through Worker’s Compensation. Similarly, I also provide dietary advice and management for clients who have suffered an injury and whose quality of life can be improved through diet.

Cancellation Fee Policy

As you would appreciate, my time is very valuable and I only have a certain number of hours to see clients. To ensure that people do not miss out on appointment times I have a strict 24 (business) hour cancellation policy.

Please respect that all cancellations and rescheduled appointments must be made within at least 24 business hours via a phone call. Unfortunately, I cannot accept text or email message cancellations.

If an appointment is cancelled or changed within 24 hours of the original appointment, a cancellation fee of 50% of the appointment fee will be charged.

However, I do understand that at times emergencies occur and discretion will be used in these circumstances.

I aim to provide all my clients with a highly specialised service so please respect my time and efforts and speak to me or the reception staff if you require any appointments to be changed.
