Physio Coburg FAQs

No you don’t need a referral to see a physiotherapist. Simply call and book and appointment online. Just like your GP, Physiotherapists are first contact practitioners which means that you don’t need a referral to see us. However, we will engage with your other health practitioners including your GP as required.

A GP referral is necessary if you have a WorkCover/TAC claim, NDIS plan, Veteran Affairs client, or have a CDM plan (formally EPC).

All our consultations including Initial and Standard consultations are for 30min. Sometimes your physiotherapist may discuss with you about other consultations like a return to sport assessment that may require more time.

The Chronic Disease Management plan (formerly Enhanced Primary Care or EPC) is a Medicare initiative that enables a GP to refer patients with a chronic condition to allied health services including physiotherapy for up to five sessions per calendar year.

Your eligibility for CDM is up to the clinical judgment of your GP and includes having a chronic medical condition that has been (or likely to be) present for six months or longer, and conditions that require multidisciplinary care from a GP and at least two other health care providers.

Please speak to your GP to assess your eligibility.
