Learn More >> Chronic Disease Management Plan Eligibility

A person who has a chronic or terminal medical condition can have a GP Management Plan (GPMP) service. A person with a chronic or terminal medical condition and complex care needs, requiring care from a multidisciplinary team, can have a GPMP and Team Care Arrangements (TCAs).

A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke. There is no list of eligible conditions.

However, a Chronic Disease Management Plan is designed for patients who require a structured approach to their care and to enable GPs to plan and coordinate the care of patients with complex conditions requiring ongoing care from a multidisciplinary team.

Funding For Clients Under Private Health

Exercise Physiology services are now recognised by almost all private health funds and substantial rebates are available (dependent on your level of cover). We recommend you contact your health fund to ensure you are eligible for Exercise Physiology services.

Learn More >> What Happens In A Follow Up Exercise Physiology Visit

Follow up visits allow your Exercise Physiologist to progress you on your exercise/rehabilitation program to ensure your body continues to adapt in a positive manner week after week. These sessions will include:

  • Progression of prescribed exercises
  • Review of goals and measurements 
  • Review of exercise technique and rehabilitation protocols  
  • Functional/clinical fitness retesting

Every individual client requires/prefers to commit to a unique volume and frequency of follow up visits.

Some clients prefer to see an EP multiple times per week for one on one personal training style workouts.

Some clients prefer to use the follow up visit at weekly, fortnightly or even monthly intervals. This method provides an opportunity for our EP to monitor our clients results and progress their program which they can then continue to undertake independently at home.
