REBATES

Medicare

Rebates for Dietitian services are available through Medicare for clients under a Chronic Disease Management Plan (previously known as Enhanced Primary Care or EPC). A chronic medical condition is one that has been present, or is likely to be present, for 6 months or longer. To qualify for this rebate, a referral is required from your GP, entitling you to 5 sessions per calendar year. Glow Group Health and Wellbeing does not bulk bill, so we do ask that clients kindly pay the difference between the fee charged and the Medicare rebate.

Private Health

Most private health funds offer coverage for Dietitian/Nutrition services as a component of their extras cover. If you are unsure of your coverage we recommend contacting your health fund to see whether you are eligible. Should you have any questions or queries regarding the claiming process the Glow Group team is very happy to help.

NDIS

If you are a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participant your Dietitian service may be funded through the NDIS. Depending on your NDIS plan, services may be funded under Improved Daily Living, Health and Wellbeing or Core Supports (for specialty enteral feeding resources). If you are unsure whether you are eligible the Glow Group team would be happy to assist you in assessing your plan.
