Patients may be referred under the Medicare Chronic Disease Management Plan - Team Care Arrangement (formally the Enhanced Primary Care Plan).
We try to fax back acceptance of the TCA on the day of receipt.
Referral through this program will enable the patient to access up to five osteopathic consultations. Medicare offers a significant rebate of $52.95 on these services.
We have the privilege of spending up to 60 minutes for an initial consultations and 30 minutes for any subsequent consultations. Unfortunately, this means we cannot bulk bill for EPC referrals.
Please view our schedule of fees page to see what the cost gap will be for your patients.
LIMITED Bulk Billing Available

The Osteopaths at Fairfield Osteopathic Clinic can now bulk bill patients supported by third-party insurer TAC, which means you pay no gap. TAC patients will need to confirm with TAC that they are covered for osteopathic services and provide their claim number and date of accident when they make a booking.

- We provide written information to referrers regarding the assessment, treatment and progress of your patients. We welcome the opportunity for inter-professional consultation and requests for further information regarding your patients.
