Podiatry is covered by most health fund ancillary (extras) plans. If you are covered by your fund we can offer the HICAPS system of payment where you need only to pay the remaining gap. You can check if you fund participates in the HICAPS program here.
Podiatry is not covered by Medicare. There is one exception to this rule where a GP may refer a patient through the Enhanced Primary Care program. This is for people with chronic illnesses
or complex care needs. Further information can be found in this brochure from Medicare
WorkCover patients are welcome with referral from their GP and valid WorkCover certificate.
