Rebates from Medicare – CDM program
The Australian Federal Government changed the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program in 2004 to allow for registered Allied Health practitioners (including Osteopaths) to bill certain CDM items under Medicare. The Osteopaths at Osteopathy on Canterbury & Complementary Therapies are registered to accept referrals for patients with chronic conditions under the CDM program, allowing patients to claim a rebate from Medicare. Please consult with your doctor to determine whether you qualify for this program.
