Unfortunately, our bodies do not behave perfectly throughout our lives. Chronic i.e. lifelong disease is a leading cause of illness and disability. According to the Department of Health, 1 in 2 Australians have a chronic disease, and 3 in 5 Australians over the age of 65 have two or more chronic conditions.
Support from your GP, specialists and allied health providers can help you to optimise your health management and improve quality of life.
If you have an eligible chronic medical issue, I can help you to access Medicare rebates for allied health services such as podiatry, dietetics (dietician), physiotherapy and exercise physiology. Check out this Department of Health factsheet for more information on how this works.
