Podiatry Bulk Billing explained 1000 667 Ace Health Centre

First of all, we believe that great treatment shouldn’t matter on the type of insurance cover you have or the amount of money that’s sitting in your account. At ACE Health Centre, we provide excellent podiatry services for everyone – bulk billed or not.

 

What is Bulk Billing?

To be able to Bulk Bill you must have an EPC or TCA care plan from your doctor. There is a range of assessments your doctor will need to perform to see if you qualify for bulk-billed podiatry. But if you do, your GP can provide you with up to 5 visits per year for podiatry needs.

 

What do I get out of Bulk billed podiatry visits at ACE?

Think of it as a free trial at the gym. Our sessions work pretty similarly. You’ll get a chance to see our Podiatrists, either at Clear Island Waters or Nerang for a 30-minute visit under the Medicare, Bulk Billed Podiatry care plan.

Yes, you read right! Only at ACE will you get 30min instead of 20min consults to ensure you’ll be well taken care of. Even though Medicare only pays for 20-minute podiatry sessions, we believe that the 10 minutes on top of that will make all the difference to make sure we have enough time with each patient and assess and diagnose without having to rush through things.

 

Where can I get Bulk Billed Podiatry treatments?

Our podiatrists work at our main clinic in Clear Island Waters (close to Mermaid Beach, Broadbeach, and Carrara). Alternatively, you can see Mike Luker, our head podiatrist, at Nerang (close to Gold Coast hinterland and Mudgeeraba), so regardless where you live on the Gold Coast, there’s always an ACE clinic nearby.

  • Thanks for explaining how you’ll be tested to determine if you qualify for bulk billing and can get up to 5 visits annually if you do. If someone wants this, it would probably be a good idea to ensure you research bulk billing beforehand and learn about the requirements. You could learn about them online or even contact potential doctors beforehand so you can save time and more easily narrow down your options.
