All Physiotherapists practicing at Roberts Physiotherapy are fully accredited with RTWSA, MVA - CTP and the Department of Veteran Affairs. A referral from your General Practitioner is required before any physiotherapy treatment sessions can be undertaken under these compensable bodies.


All consultations and treatment sessions are billed according to the fee schedules and guidelines set out by RTWSA and the Department of Veteran Affairs. All accounts are sent directly to these insurers meaning there are no out of pocket expenses incurred by the patient.


It is essential that RTWSA and MVA– CTP claimants provide relevant claim details (insurance agent and claim number) to ensure prompt payment. Patients covered under Veteran Affairs should bring their gold/white card and referral letter.

medicare – enhanced primary care plan


Medicare benefits are now being paid for some services provided by allied health professionals, including Physiotherapists. From 1 July 2004, it became possible for people with chronic conditions and complex care needs which are being managed by a General Practitioner to become eligible for visits funded by Medicare. If you think you have a chronic condition and complex care needs, then you can discuss this with your General Practitioner and ask them to prepare an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan. If your GP agrees that you would benefit from an EPC plan then you can be referred for up to 5 physiotherapy treatments per year.


what are chronic conditions and complex care needs?


Chronic conditions are defined as conditions which have been present for six months or more.


Complex care needs mean that, in your doctor’s opinion, you would benefit from care provided by a range of health professionals, who provide different services to doctors. Roberts Physiotherapy will bulk bill straight to Medicare for any visits under the EPC plan, which means there are no out of pocket expenses for the patient. If patients wish to be seen by Peter Roberts, specialist physiotherapist  under this plan, a gap payment will apply.
