Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need a Doctors’ Referral to see a Physio?
Karakrista is a Nationally registered provider and can treat clients without a medical referral. If you are a member of a Private Health Fund you are able to claim your treatment without a doctors’ referral. Hicaps and eftpos are available on site.
Can I claim a Rebate from Medicare?
Physiotherapy is generally not covered by Medicare, however if you have a chronic or complex condition you may be eligible for the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Program which entitles you to receive a substantial rebate from Medicare for up to 5 treatments per year. Speak to your doctor, as you will require a medical referral. When you make an appointment, please let your physiotherapist know and bring your EPC forms with you.
