Which dietitian should I see? 

  • All of our dietitians have expertise in chronic disease management, weight concerns, FODMAPS and the elimination diet.
  • They also have speciality areas, which you can read about here
  • If you require additional information, please call 9431 4337 or email reception@discoverhealth.com.au and our friendly staff will be happy to talk with you further about our dietitians.

What type of appointments do you offer? 

  • We offer face-to-face appointments at all of our locations
  • We also offer phone and Skype appointments with our dietitians as we understand that not everyone is able to come to our practice and meet with the dietitian face to face. Phone and Skype appointments are unfortunately not eligible for Medicare rebates. For more information about this, please contact Medicare.

Do I need a referral from my GP to book an appointment with a dietitian? 

  • A referral from a GP is not required to make an appointment with one of our dietitians.
  • However, chronic disease management plans are required for Medicare rebates to apply. For more information about Chronic Disease Management Plans, click here.

Can I use private health insurance? 

  • We have facilities to process claims for many private health insurance funds on the day of your appointment where possible. The private health fund claim is processed first and the balance is then payable. Private health fund rebates vary and depend on the type of cover and the individual health fund’s policies.
  • Contact your private health fund for more information about what rebate your level of cover entitles you to.

Can I use private health insurance? 

  • Medicare offers rebates of $52.95 for clients with a Chronic Disease Management Plan from their GP. We have facilities that allow these rebates to be processed on the same day as your appointment where possible. There will be a gap payment that varies depending on the cost of the appointment.
  • Your GP can allocate up to 5 rebates per calendar year, that you can use to claim the Medicare rebate for allied health services.

Our reception staff is happy to discuss this with you in more detail and answer questions as they’re able. However, only your GP can confirm your eligibility for a Chronic Disease Management Plan and issue you with one. Discuss your personal circumstances with your GP for more information.

Medicare is also able to provide additional information on Chronic Disease Management Plans.
