Frequently Asked Questions

Medicare covers patients who have been issued an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) by their GP. Please ensure that the referral from the GP is made out to “Blacktown Foot Clinic” and not to individual practitioners.

Your GP can allocate a maximum of up to five Medicare bulk-billed visits per calendar year. It is the responsibility of the patient to keep track of the total amount of visits they have used for Podiatry and other allied health services.

If you have exceeded the maximum number of visits for the year or your EPC has expired, then the standard service fees shall apply.

DVA referrals from your GP are accepted, provided you are eligible for this service.

A GP referral is not necessary to see us.

Depending on your health cover, Podiatry may be covered under extras. Check with your private health insurance provider to find out the level of rebate. Please consult our Fees page to find our prices and item codes when discussing this with your provider.
