Insurance and Billing

Private Health Funds

Mint Foot Care has HICAPS facilities on-site for direct claiming from your private health fund. The rebates for podiatry services are different for each private health fund and level of cover.

After the consultation, your health fund card is simply swiped through the HICAPS terminal. Your claim details are entered to receive an instant rebate leaving you only the gap (the difference between the full fee at the time of the consultation and the amount claimed from your health fund). The gap amount is paid using our EFTPOS facility with your EFTPOS or credit card.

Please contact your private health fund for more information about the podiatry and orthotic rebates you may be eligible for.

Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA)

DVA Gold Card holders and White Card holders specifying podiatry are entitled to all podiatry treatments to be billed directly to DVA upon receipt of a doctor’s referral.

Medicare

We can bulk bill general consultations to Medicare upon receipt of a Medicare referral from your General Practitioner (GP) also known as the Chronic Disease Management (CDM)-Individual Allied Health Services Referral.

The CDM Program is a government initiative that was introduced to provide more preventative care and to improve coordination of care for people with chronic conditions and complex care needs.

We can bulk bill to Medicare a total of 5 podiatry visits through a CDM referral per calendar year.

Please speak with your GP in regards to obtaining a referral.
