Our clinic and doctors are committed to managing your chronic illness and complex care needs under a GP Management Plan and regular Health Assessments. Our Chronic Disease Management Nurse will collaborate with your GP to ensure you have the best support, services and health outcomes. A GP Management Plan (Care Plan) can be prepared for you along with a Team Care Arrangement (TCA) and Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC). The TCA and EPC entitle you to 5 Medicare subsidised visits a calendar year to allied health services (e.g. podiatry, physiotherapy, exercise physiology). Care Plans have many advantages for you and allow us to address and manage your chronic health condition appropriately with ample allocated time.
Examples of Chronic Health Conditions:
- Heart Disease
- Other conditions could apply, speak to your doctor or nurse
The preparation and review of your Care Plan are bulk billed to Medicare, meaning there is no additional out of pocket fees for this service.
