Are physiotherapy and osteopathy treatments covered by insurance in Victoria?

If you’re in Victoria and wondering about insurance coverage for physiotherapy and osteopathy treatments, you’ll be pleased to know that physiotherapy and osteopathy treatments are covered by private health insurance if you have the appropriate extras cover. Most private health insurance companies offer extras cover that includes physio and osteo treatments, recognizing their importance in healthcare.

When inquiring about the benefits provided by your private health insurer for consultations, make sure to provide them with the cost of the appointment and the corresponding consultation codes:

  • Initial Physiotherapy Consultation: Code 500
  • Subsequent Physiotherapy Consultations: Code 505
  • Extended Physiotherapy Consultations: Code 506
  • Initial Osteopathic Appointment: Code 1804
  • Return Osteopathic Appointment: Code 1803

Is Physiotherapy and Osteopathy covered by Medicare in Victoria?

Physiotherapy and Osteopathy is generally not covered by Medicare, unless you have a Medicare Enhanced Primary Care Plan (Medicare EPC Plan). If you possess a Medicare EPC Plan, you may be able to allocate a portion of it towards the physiotherapy or osteopathy consultation fee. 

Is DG Health a preferred provider?

We Are Not Preferred Providers 

While opting for a preferred provider may seem appealing, it’s important to understand the full picture…

Being a preferred provider does not necessarily equate to superior service; it simply means that the provider has adjusted their fee schedule to meet specific requirements. Unfortunately, this adjustment often comes at the expense of consultation length and quality.

Furthermore, while it’s true that visiting a preferred provider may result in a lower out-of-pocket expense per appointment (as the health fund pays more), this typically means exhausting your Physiotherapy cover more quickly. The overall limit remains unchanged; only the initial upfront amount from the health fund is affected.

At DG Health, we prioritize delivering the highest quality treatments because we believe you deserve nothing less when it comes to achieving your desired outcome and living a pain-free life.

Our dedicated team is committed to helping you overcome pain and reach your goals. We strive to provide personalized care and ensure the best possible experience for you.

We invite you to experience the difference at DG Health in Richmond. Let us help you on your journey to becoming pain-free and achieving your goals. We look forward to working with you soon.
