PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE (HICAPS)
All our osteopaths are covered by private health insurance, and most of our acupuncturists and massage therapists also. This will apply to you only if your policy covers you for the type of treatment, usually part of your “extras” coverage. Best to give them a call and check your policy if you are unsure. Some of our massage therapists are covered by private health, so if this is important to you, please ask at the time of booking to see someone who is covered by your health insurance. All osteopaths, and most other practitioners are claimable on the HICAPS system in our clinic, which allows you to claim on the spot. Massage is not on the NSW HICAPS system yet, so we will supply you with a receipt that you can send into your health fund subsequent to your visit with us.
SIRA (WORKCOVER) AND THIRD PARTY INSURANCE
Some of our osteopaths are registered with Workcover NSW and are therefore able to take on any Workcover cases, however a claim number will be required from your insurance agency. We will liase with your work cover case officer, your insurance agency, and your GP and work as a team to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. Give us a call if you have any questions about this process. Likewise any third party insurance cases are also commonly handled in our clinic. If possible, please bring the claim approval paperwork on your first visit with us, as well as any important information such as the date of injury and name of insurance company.
MEDICARE AND THE EPC PROGRAM
If your GP has provided you with an EPC program, we can also take care of you at Restore. Many of our chronic patients have been referred to us by local GP’s and their treatment is partially covered by Medicare. If you unsure of whether you are an appropriate candidate for this program, have a chat to your GP and see whether this could be the answer for you.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT & PARKING
We are less than 50m from St Leonards train station, and its major bus terminal. Our patients also find that there is usually no problem parking out front of the clinic on Chandos Street which is metered 2 hours parking. At the north end of Chandos street there is also Chandos Street Council Carpark which is a large carpark next to the train line only 50 metres from the clinic entrance.
