Prices

FACE-TO-FACE CONSULTATIONS
Note: The fees in this section are for self-funded people, who may or may not have private health insurance. 
Please see further below on this page for more information about Medicare, DVA and NDIS claims.


Initial Consultation - 75 minutes:   $125 
Includes comprehensive assessment, massage / therapy, and exercise prescription if required.  The total visit may take about 90 minutes (see explanation below).

Standard Consultation - 60 minutes:   $110
Massage / therapy only, with less time spent on assessment and prescription.
($100 /hour is also used as my hourly rate for tele-health sessions. See more below)

45 minutes:   $95

30 minutes:   $80

90 minutes or more:    $140 or more (POA)


At the start of any face-to-face session we will usually spend about 10-15 minutes discussing your past and current health, consulting about what you want from the therapy, and preparing the treatment table with towels and cover (that I supply) and pillows (that you supply). 

The prices above apply to the duration of the therapy itself, which starts from the time that you get on the massage table and finishes when you get back up, and takes into account that we will probably talk for about 10-15 minutes before and after that therapy.

I'll generally work out with you exactly what you want and how much the treatment will cost before we start. However, if we spend less or more that 15 minutes on discussing your situation before, or prescribing exercises after the treatment, or the massage itself goes under or over the agreed time, we may discuss a lesser or greater amended fee, according to your circumstances, at the end of the visit.  

 




- Payment Methods: Following the consultation you can pay by cash, cheque, credit card or direct bank transfer. A PDF invoice can be emailed to you, which contains my bank details, so that you can pay online from your bank account.  

- HEALTH FUND Claims: Once payment has been received, a PDF receipt can be provided by email to enable you to claim through your health fund.  HICAPS is not available at this time.

- MEDICARE Claims for Physiotherapy: If you have chronic or complex health needs that would benefit from physiotherapy, you can claim some or all of the physiotherapy treatment fee through Medicare if you have arranged a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plan (formerly known as an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan) with your GP. Eligible patients may access Medicare rebates for a maximum of 5 allied health services (total) in a calendar year. The GP needs to have specifically stated my name and address (PO Box 327, Allawah NSW 2218) on the CDM Referral Form , and completed the form prior to me seeing you (Medicare doesn't allow it to be back-dated), for my services to be claimable. Depending on your circumstances, I may bulk-bill or charge a gap. If you want to claim through Medicare, please discuss this with me prior to booking your treatment with me.  Read more at the Australian Government Dept of Health.

- DVA Claims for Physiotherapy: If you hold a Dept of Veterans' Affairs card and have a referral from your GP, my visits to you can be claimable through the DVA. If you want to claim through the DVA, please discuss this with me prior to booking your treatment with me. Read more at the Australian Government Dept of Veterans' Affairs.

- NDIS Claims for Physiotherapy:  I am not formally registered with the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme), but I can still provide NDIS-funded services to improve your function and engagement if your NDIS funding is self-managed or plan-managed, with enough funding for Improved Daily Living or Core Support.
At present my NDIS fee is $160 / hour. 
I will only charge for travel if you are more than 30 minutes from my base in Penshurst NSW 2222 (see my Travel Areas page).
If you want to claim through your NDIS funding, please discuss this with me prior to booking your treatment with me.
I am not permitted to provide services for you if your case is managed by the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency). Read more at the NDIS.

TELEHEALTH
In light of COVID-19 restrictions and concerns, I can provide initial and follow-up consultations via video-conference to assess your physical issues, and guide you with exercise and rehabilitation that you can do at home or your local exercise facility. 
The charged fee for your session will be proportional to the time we spend online. Fees will begin at $50 for a minimum 15 minute video consultation, and increase by increments of $15 for each 15 minutes beyond that time. It is likely that video sessions will be shorter than traditional face-to-face sessions. The reduction in fees from my face-to-face mobile service (above) reflects the elimination of travel time.
Please contact me if you are interested in this option to keep you moving and well during the COVID-19 crisis.

- Concessions: Discounts are available for pensioners (disability, aged etc) or students upon presentation of your ID card.

- Pre-Booked Series: Discounts are available for a pre-booked series of 5 or more treatments.
$10 off each massage or 10% off the total, whichever is greater.

- Gift Certificates: Gift Certificates are available, according to the pricing schedule above.
