PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE
At Southside Clinic, we offer our clients with private health extras cover the ability to have their rebate deducted directly from their fund via a HICAPS machine. This means you would only have to pay the ‘gap’. The amount that your fund gives you per visit differs between funds and levels of cover, so you would need to check with your own fund about how much they offer towards your consultation.
A medicare rebate is offered for part of the cost of treatment for patients on Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plans and Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP). You need a referral from your GP to be eligible for this, and you may be entitled to up to 5 (CDM) or 10 (MHCP) treatments per year partly covered by Medicare. A CDM rebate is currently $52.95 and a MHCP rebate is currently $124.50.

MOTOR ACCIDENT COMMISSION
Osteopaths & Physiotherapists are approved providers for the Motor Accident Commission. To be eligible to process your MAC claim at Southside Clinic, you will need approval from your case manager for care, as well as details of your case managers name and phone number and your case number.
