  1. You can be seen at the next available appointment and pay the full consultation fee 
  2. You can ask to be booked into the 'Bulk Bill' clinic 

 

The bulk bill clinic is run every month for public patients at no out of pocket cost. There are limited spaces and you may have to wait a few months

You must have a GP referral stating that you are a public patient before you can be booked into the bulk bill clinic. 

No, you can attend exercise physiology or physiotherapy at Jointworks without a referral.

If you have a new or recent injury that requires pain relief or evaluation to determine what, if anything, is damaged. Then Physio is your best first step. Alternatively, if you have received treatment for this issue already or the problem is a long-standing problem that is exacerbated by movement then our Exercise Physiologists are your best option.

Any information you have from previous investigations, scan reports, or referral letters etc is useful. But if you have none of these, that is fine, we will carry out a comprehensive assessment anyway.

Absolutely, we can process on the spot rebates through hicaps however, each health insurance policy is different so we encourage you to check with your insurer to see what your coverage includes.

You will also be required to leave on your mask if being treated in a consultation room or undergoing assessment in a consultation room.
