Health care providers | General Practitioners

ActivOT is a registered Medicare provider. To be eligible for Medicare benefits, clients need a referral from a General Practitioner and our services must be part of an overall care plan.  A gap payment applies in some cases.

Information about rebates for health care providers

ActivOT practitioners can provide occupational therapy services on a fee for service basis to any private client, whether or not they are covered by private health insurance or Medicare. No referral is required.

Many clients are entitled to subsidised fees for occupational therapy under Medicare or private health insurance extras rebates and we encourage health care providers to get in touch with us to discuss this.

ActivOT provides services at no cost to veterans and war widows who qualify under the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA). For veteran services we require a referral from a GP or hospital discharge planner.

Team Care Arrangements for Registered Aged Care Facilities

For clients with complex conditions or those residing in a Registered Aged Care Facility (RACF) we’re happy to participate in Team Care Arrangements (TCAs). For those with chronic conditions we can provide services through a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plan under Medicare with the appropriate referral. There will be a gap payable for services provided.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss referral requirements and fees applicable. We will only be too happy to assist you.
