A Chronic Disease Management Plan is an Australian Commonwealth Government initiative where people with a chronic medical condition may be able to receive Medicare benefits towards the costs of podiatry care to help manage their condition. This scheme was formerly known as the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Programme. This requires a referral from your GP who will determine if you are eligible for the programme.
At FootMotion, we accept management plan referrals and provide your GP with the relevant reports of your progress. We bulk bill these services, so you have no out of pocket expenses.
