AM I ELIGIBLE FOR REBATES
Please note: This practice does not offer bulk billing dietitian services.
Shirley is a dietitian registered with Medicare. You may be eligible for a rebate from Medicare if you have a Chronic Disease Management plan (formerly the EPC plan). This plan is arranged by your GP before your dietitian appointment. This plan provides Medicare rebates ($52.95 each visit) for a maximum of five Allied Health appointments each year.
Full payment is required at the time of your appointment before you receive your rebate through Medicare. Medicare rebate can be processed for you on the spot.
Note: It is against Medicare rule for a practitioner to accept the Medicare rebate AND charge the client the 'gap' to make up the total fee.
Private Health Insurer
Shirley is a registered provider of all health funds. You may be eligible for a rebate from your Private Health Insurer depending on the level of your health cover. Please consult your provider. HICAPS facility is available in the Bella Vista consult room so you only pay the gap on the day.
Please note: Medicare and private health fund rebate only applies to in-clinic consultation. Medicare and private health fund do not provide rebate for phone or Skype appointment.
Shirley is a NDIS registered provider. No out-of-pocket fee for NDIS participant with relevant support category for dietitian services. Please refer to this page here.

Cancellation and non-attendance fee policy
As you would appreciate, time is very valuable. Non-attendance to an arranged appointment is unfair to other clients and your practitioner's time, so please provide 24 hours if you are unable to make a scheduled appointment. The full consult fee will be charged if the appointment is cancelled or changed within 24 hours of the original appointment.
We understand that in exceptional circumstances, this may not be possible, and we are always happy to make exceptions at such time.
