Booking Your Membership Treatments/Sessions

After selecting the treatments you would like for the month, please call the Centre on 02 4454 1863 to book. You are welcome to book a few months in advance if this suits your lifestyle. We want you to get maximum benefit from your membership, so do consider a variety of treatments for total well-being! To ensure that you are able to book for the treatments of your choice, please book your treatments/sessions by the 15th of the month. Should we be unable to accommodate a treatment/session requested prior to the 15th of the month, the Centre will carry over this entitlement to the following month. We will endeavour to honour all appointment requests made past the 15th of the month, but if we are unable to accommodate these, unfortunately the treatment/session shall be forfeited and not carried over to the following month.

Appointments cancelled within 24 hours or not attended without notification will not be re-booked. Where there are exceptional circumstances, re-booking of this appointment will be at the discretion of the Centre management.

Health Fund rebates may still be claimed directly with your fund by obtaining a receipt after your treatment.

Medicare Information

2000px-Medicare_brand.svgWho is eligible?

You may be able to claim Medicare rebates for allied health services if you have a chronic (or terminal) medical condition that is being managed by your GP under both of these Medicare Chronic Disease Management (CDM) items: a GP Management Plan (GPMP) and Team Care Arrangements (TCAs). The need for allied health services must be directly related to your chronic condition.

Chronic Medical Conditions

A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke. There is no list of eligible conditions. However, the CDM items are designed for patients who require a structured approach and to enable GPs to plan and coordinate the care of patients with complex conditions requiring ongoing care from a multidisciplinary team.

Management of Your Condition

If you have a chronic (or terminal) condition, with or without complex care needs, a GPMP will enable your GP to provide a structured approach to your care. It is a plan of action in which you agree management goals with your GP.

If you also have complex care needs, requiring multidisciplinary care, TCAs will enable your GP to collaborate with at least two other care providers involved in your treatment. TCAs will identify who needs to be involved in your care and help coordinate the team-based approach.

Active Wellness Centre can provide Exercise Physiology, Chiropractic and Psychology services.

Active Wellness Centre meet specific eligibility criteria and are registered with Medicare Australia.

Appointments for most Active Wellness Centre services do not require a referral from a GP or specialist. However, a current Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) from your GP is required for appointments under Medicare. Medicare Care Plan services are currently available for Exercise Physiology, Chiropractic and Psychology (Counselling) and our practitioners do not charge a gap fee.

Should you hold a current DVA Gold Card, you may ask your GP to refer you to our practitioners for Exercise Physiology, Chiropractic and Psychology services.

If you are eligible for treatments under WorkCover as a result of a work injury, your GP may refer you for treatments for Remedial Massage, Exercise Physiology, Chiropractic and Psychology.

Your GP may also refer you for these services if you have a current Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance claim.
