Health Management plans are wonderful for any adult or child with longer term problems, or those requiring ongoing help.
In these cases we recommend developing a Management Plan to prioritise and summarise treatment options and goals.
When a patient is facing a condition or treatment that will last more than 3 months, a Management Plan helps them clearly understand what their treatment will involve over time and the health goals we are aiming to achieve with them. Every Management Plan is developed specifically for each individual, the health challenges they are facing and the treatment schedules we recommend for them. This is funded by Medicare, which usually eliminates any Doctor’s gap fee for this service.
Another great benefit of a Management Plan is that we can refer you to various Allied Health providers, such as our in-house Dietician, or nearby physiotherapists, podiatrists, exercise physiologists or speech therapists. You can receive five Medicare funded sessions per year, cutting the cost to you.
Health Management Plans are a great service and give our patients ownership and control of their treatment schedule. They can see exactly what is ahead, and what they are aiming for. We thoroughly recommend that patients who are needing longer term treatments take advantage of this great service.
