The initial appointment is where I learn all about you!
We'll chat about your history, lifestyle, motivations and collaboratively establish a plan to work towards your goals. This process generally takes around 50 minutes to 1 hour.
During review consults, we will check in with your progress, chat through what is and isn't working, and determine how to move forward. These sessions usually take around 30 minutes.
Some people will only need a few appointments, while others will benefit from long-term treatment.
You can just make an appointment. That said, you might be eligible for a Medicare rebate if you go to your GP first and discuss this with them.
Medicare rebates are available to clients who have a chronic condition and complex care needs being managed by a medical practitioner (GP) under a shared care plan or under both a GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangement. GP referrals must be accompanied by a signed Referral Form for Allied Health Services to be eligible for a Medicare rebate.
Medicare rebates are also available for individuals referred under an Eating Disorder Treatment Plan with a referral from their GP.
Medicare rebates are available under the following item numbers:
Under these Medicare item numbers, clients can receive up to 5 rebates of $54.60 within a 12 month period for consultations with eligible allied health practitioners. If you would like to claim for dietetic consultations through Medicare please speak to your GP about whether you qualify for a Chronic Disease Management Plan.
*Medicare rebates for Telehealth and phone consultations will cease in alignment with Australian Government policy on 30 December 2021.
Under these Medicare item numbers, clients can receive up to 20 rebates of $54.60 within a 12 month period for consultations with eligible allied health practitioners. If you would like to claim for dietetic consultations through Medicare please speak to your GP about whether you qualify for an Eating Disorder Treatment Plan.
Fees stated must be paid in full prior to your appointment time.
This being said, please reach out to me via firstname.lastname@example.org if finances are a barrier for you, as I truly endeavour to be accessible to all.
I am registered with Medicare and with most Australian private health providers. Fees must be paid in full and a receipt will be provided for claiming rebates at your discretion.
Initial consult (50 minutes) - $120
Standard consult (30 minutes) - $70
