Enhanced Primary Care
Active Body Physiotherapy accepts all clientele seeking physiotherapy, exercise therapy or rehabilitation under the Medicare EPC Scheme. Dependent on your specific requirements, a treating Doctor will provide you with an action plan suitable for addressing your needs. This may be in the form of hands on treatment, exercise prescription or a combination of the two. The Australian government funded Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan for physiotherapy and exercise based intervention would be of benefit to many clients with chronic illnesses, including the following:
- Chronic Cardiac Conditions
- Chronic Pulmonary Conditions
- Chronic Musculoskeletal Conditions
- Neurological Conditions
Chronic Renal Conditions (including post transplant)
Our therapy team has comprehensive experience in exercise programming for all the above conditions. The subsidised five sessions with our physiotherapists and exercise physiologists are designed to incorporate an initial assessment, and individualised program implementation.
With the knowledge of the correlation between exercise regimentation and decreasing risk factors of lifestyle illnesses arises the very cost effective means of both prevention and cure of such conditions. We are professionally qualified to tailor exercise programs to specific populations such as those suffering from chronic lifestyle illnesses. Working in a physiotherapy environment allows us to combine our professional knowledge with a medical and health background, offering specific, safe comprehensive exercise programmes. Often, specific population groups are not always suited to or preferred by the more popular and less precise fitness industry
We hope to be able to address your chronic conditions with specific, tailored, individualised physiotherapy and exercise intervention. If you have any further queries in regards to the EPC program, please contact Active Body, or similarly discuss this with your Doctor at your next visit to see if you qualify for Medicare reimbursement of your physiotherapy sessions.
Additionally we are able to directly debit back your reimbursement from Medicare with our new HICAPS terminal, thus saving you valuable time lining up to get your refund.
