How to Access an Exercise Physiologist

Hey there, health warriors! 🌟 Are you thinking about levelling up your wellness game with the help of an Exercise Physiologist (EP)?

If you're nodding your head but scratching it at the same time, wondering how to make that happen—you're in the right place! Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of how you can access top-notch EP services and supercharge your health journey.

Medicare: Your Ticket to Affordable Care

So, you've got a chronic condition, and you're tired of it running your life. Guess what? Medicare's got your back! 🙌 Your General Practitioner (GP) can be your golden ticket to seeing an AEP. With a Chronic Disease Management Plan in hand, you can get a Medicare rebate for up to five allied health sessions per year. That's five opportunities to turn your health around without breaking the bank. How awesome is that?

DVA: Serving Those Who've Served

Hey, veterans! You've served your country, and now it's time for your country to serve you. DVA Gold card and White card holders are eligible for EP services. All you need is a simple referral from your GP, and you're good to go. It's a small but significant way to say thank you for your service.

Private Health Insurance: Maximise Your Benefits

Got private health insurance? Then you're in for a treat! 🎉 Many plans offer rebates for exercise physiology services. The amount and conditions can vary, so grab that policy booklet and give it a good read—or just call your provider. You do not need a referral from your GP for this option and can claim back up to 60% on your consultation fees depending on your cover.

Aged Care: Age is Just a Number

For our seasoned citizens, age is indeed just a number, especially when it comes to staying active and healthy. 🌈 If you're receiving aged care services, guess what? You may be able to include exercise physiology in your care plan! It's a fantastic way to keep those joints moving and that heart pumping. So go ahead, talk to your care provider and add some zest to your golden years.

Worker's Compensation and CTP: Your Pathway to Recovery

Accidents happen, even at work or on the road. But that shouldn't put your life on hold. 🛠️ If you've suffered a workplace or car injury, worker's compensation and CTP can be your lifeline. With the right approvals and a dash of paperwork, you can access EP services to kickstart your recovery journey. It's not just about getting back to work; it's about getting back to life!

NDIS: Your Route to Better Health With a Disability

If you're an NDIS participant, great news! Move 2 Thrive Clinic is here to support both self-managed and plan-managed participants. The NDIS empowers you to take control of your health, and exercise physiology fits perfectly into that.
