National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
For people with a disability, you can use your NDIS funding for Core Nutrition services if you have chosen to self manage the funding for NDIS supports. Dietetics support is claimable under "Improved Daily Living Skills" (Therapy) budget category.
Medicare (CDM / EPC)
If you're eligible you can have up to 5 visits with a Dietitian per calendar year. We do not bulk bill Medicare visits. You pay the full consultation amount (as above) and we will send your claim to Medicare. Medicare will then rebate $53.80 into your bank account (usually rebated on the next working day). There is no need to take your receipt to Medicare, we do it for you. Please note, you cannot roll over unused visits into a new Care Agreement the following year. Ask your GP if you're eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDM) previously known as the Enhance Primary Care Plan (EPC). We no longer bulk-bill these appointments because we deliver a very high quality service and believe that patient care would be compromised by seeing you within a shorter appointment (20 minutes). If your GP told you that your visits here will be free, please inform them they are not free and refer them to our website.
Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA)
We are preferred providers for the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). If you are a DVA card holder, then depending on your card type you may be able to see our dietitian for free, 100% bulk billed, no gap to pay. To check your eligibility before seeing us, go to the DVA website or call DVA directly.
3rd Party Claim
We are preferred providers for Return to Work SA (workcover) and Insurance claims, including the Department of Correctional Services. Fees are pro-rata billed for consultations and reports. Ask us for more information.
At Core Nutrition, payment is always upfront and we accept the following payment methods:
We ask you respect our practitioners' valuable time and energy by giving us notice by 4pm the previous day, if you need to cancel or reschedule. In the case of Monday appointments, by 4pm on the Friday. Late notice or Non- attendance on the day of a scheduled appointment will also result in the full appointment fee. (even if you're on a care plan or other 3rd party claim). Reminder that Medicare, 3rd Party Insurance, Return to Work SA and DVA will not pay for missed appointments or late cancelled appointments. This is part of our terms and conditions of our Costs & Services. If you re-book your appointment straight away, we may waiver the missed appointment fee. We send out SMS appointment reminders and we expect you to reply to each SMS as soon as it's received.
Health Fund Insurance Rebates
In most cases you will be able to claim part of the cost of your consultation at Core Nutrition from your health fund. We use HICAPS so that you only need to pay the gap (check if your Health Fund is linked with HICAPS). If you want to know how much your health fund will cover, just call us and will help you.
