Service Fees

Our Philosophy

At Repairs Afoot Podiatry, we strive to provide the highest quality services while keeping the cost to our patients as low as possible. Due to the rising cost of consumables and other materials (particularly as a result of COVID-19), we must periodically evaluate our prices and adjust them to esure we are able to maintain the level of service we provide. Thank you for your understanding.

Medicare Rebates

We do not bulk bill consults eligible for a Medicare rebate under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) scheme, as it is important to us that all patients receive comprehensive care. In order to claim the Medicare rebate, we must have an EPC referral from your doctor.

We can process your Medicare rebate at the time of your appointment through our HICAPS facilities if you bring your Medicare card and a debit card. Alternatively, we will be happy to email or print a receipt for you to claim the rebate yourself. Please note that full payment for the service must be made before we are able to process the Medicare rebate.

Health Fund Payments

We can process your Health Fund payment at the time of your appointment if you bring your Health Fund card. Alternatively, we will be happy to email or print a receipt for you to make the claims yourself. Please check with your Health Fund the level of coverage you have for podiatry to find out the payments you are entitled to.

NDIS Payments

We are currently able to see self-managed and third party-managed participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We are in the process of NDIS registration and will shortly be able to see all NDIS participants.

DVA Payments

We are able to see all Veteran Gold Card holders as well as Veteran White Card holders with approval for podiatry for fully subsidised services. In order to claim DVA subsidised services, we must have a DVA referral from your doctor.

Private Billing

Invoices must be paid at the time of service unless alternative arrangements have been made. We accept cash, EFTPOS, credit card and Amex payments.

Bank transfers and payment plans are available with prior approval from Shaheen or Philip.
