Private Health Insurance Fund
I am registered with all Private Health Funds, so individuals with Private Health Insurance (Extras) may be entitled to rebates for Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) Services, please check eligibility with your fund.
How to claim: You will be issued with a receipt after the appointment at Dubbo Health Hub in Dubbo, or Psych Solutions in Orange, that you can submit to your private health fund.
Medicare provides rebates for dietitian appointments. To be eligible for this rebate you must have a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Care Plan from your GP. A copy of this plan and preferably (but not essential) a GP referral letter is required at the time of consultation and MUST BE PROVIDED TO US FOR PROCESSING OF YOUR CLAIM.
How to claim: Medicare claims can be processed on the spot and the refund will be deposited into your nominated bank account if your bank details are registered with Medicare
The Medicare rebate is currently $56.00
Psych Solutions is a Registered NDIS provider and consequently I can see all NDIS clients through Psych Solutions in Orange. At Dubbo Health Hub I can see Self-Managed and Plan Managed participants. If you are unsure, please contact Dubbo Health Hub on 6884 1804 to enquire.
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.
How to claim: If you are DVA eligible, please see your GP for a referral.
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. Please contact me for more information:
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.
PLEASE NOTE: Psych Solutions have recently implemented a cancellation policy. Please read and understand their cancellation policy.
