SERVICES

 

Qcity Podiatry and Healthcare offers you a complete range of Podiatric services and Nurse Practitioner/Specialist Diabetes Education services. The expertise of our practitioners in their fields is extensive and broad.

 

Allan Donnelly accepts  Allied Health Medicare Referrals from your GP. The referral is Fees and Medicare rebates are below. They are registered with the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) for podiatry services and footwear prescriptions and require a DVA referral from your GP stating "12 visits or 12 months" on the referral (new DVA guidelines).

Bunny Upathumpa is a Nurse Practitioner and Specialist Diabetes Educator who has her own Medicare item numbers. Bunny does not require a referral to be seen by her and each time you visit, you are eligible for a Medicare rebate (fees below). Bunny no longer works under the Allied Health Medicare Referrals so you do not need to get one of these referrals to receive a Medicare rebate.

SCHEDULE OF FEES

 

Qcity Podaitry and Healthcare is a private billing practice and does not bulk bill. Qcity Podiatry and Healthcare's fees reflect the quality of our service. Full payment is required at the time of service by cash, Visa Card, MasterCard or Eftpos.

If your GP, friend or family member has told you that our services are free, this is not the case and we apologise for any misunderstanding. Our services have never been free but if you have an Allied Health Medicare Referral due to having diabetes or a complex medical condition, you are eligible for a rebate of $53.80 from Medicare. If you have an Eftpos or Debit card, this rebate is put through by us after payment of your consultation. If you don't have an Eftpos or Debit card, you will need to go to a Medicare office to claim your rebate. Medicare usually pays the rebate back into your bank account the same or following day. Medicare will not allow rebates to be credited onto a credit card.

The Allied Health Medicare Referral looks similar to this and if you don't have this form or one like it, we are unable to process your rebate. A letter or note from your GP will not be sufficient for Medicare to issue your rebate.

 

Qcity Podiatry and Healthcare is recognised by all major health funds. We are able to claim private health cover through HICAPS first and then you only need pay the gap fee.

 

If you have and an appointment at 3:30, 4:00 or 4:30pm, we would appreciate payment prior to your appointment so that the after school pick-up, etc can be accommodated. We thank you for your assistance in this matter.
