ENHANCED PRIMARY CARE

 

Medicare will cover payment for up to five Occupational Therapy sessions per year as a part of their Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC) for clients with chronic pain and disease.  All that is required is a referral from you General Practitioner with the correct EPC documents. Your GP is in charge of your EPC program.

 

 

The Occupational Therapists at West Coast work with a range of chronic pain and injury from headaches, back pain to arthritis and fibromyalgia. Treatment is focused on reducing pain and increasing overall musculoskeletal health and wellbeing.

 

 

At West Coast OT in Joondalup we have the HICAPS/medicare facility to process your payment and claim your rebate through medicare right after your session. This reduces the time spent going into medicare to claim back for your sessions.
