Medicare Allied Health Rebate for Chiropractic care

Can I get a Medicare Rebate?

Talk with your local GP about eligibility for the Medicare rebate, covering chiropractic treatment. If you suffer from a chronic condition (or have complex care needs) that requires care, you may be eligible to receive up to five visits per calendar year for an Allied Health modality, such as chiropractic.


Your GP may determine if you would benefit from care provided by a range of health professionals.

What do I need to do?

Visit your local GP to discuss your health concern. You may be placed on an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan that specifically refers you for chiropractic care, to a clinic such as Lyons Road Family Chiropractic. It is your GP that decides if an EPC Medicare rebate is appropriate in your case.

Do I have to pay anything?

You may have to pay the gap between the EPC plan rebate and our standard consultation fee.

  • For pensioners there is nothing to pay
  • Since the Allied Health rebate pays $53.80 there is a gap of $16.20 for full paying patients
  • You may be eligible for up to five full chiropractic sessions at Lyons Road Family Chiropractic.
  • After your five visits, you may choose to continue your care at standard clinic fees.

What about private health insurance for chiropractic?

You may use either an EPC Medicare rebate or your private health insurance: you can’t use both at the same time. Once you have claimed your five EPC rebates you may continue with chiropractic care, using your health insurance.

Does medicare cover X-rays?

No, however a radiology provider may be able to bulk bill these for you, if required. Speak with one of our staff on this.
