Getting started

FEES – OSTEOPATHY

Electronic Health Fund rebates (Hicaps) are available for most major health funds. In cases where an electronic claim is not able to be processed, the full fee will be charged and receipts issued to enable a health fund rebate to be claimed by you.
WorkSafe, Department of Veterans Affairs and TAC clients are all welcome to receive osteopathy treatments provided the relevant referrals have been obtained.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I be fully clothed during my osteopathic treatment?
You may remain fully clothed if desired, however for the most effective treatment, you may be requested to disrobe to allow the therapist to directly treat the area. Your therapist will take all care to maintain modesty in all cases. If you are not comfortable with disrobing please discuss other options with your therapist.

What sort of medical history is required?
A brief medical history will be required to enable the therapist to gain a thorough understanding of your general health and possible issues and causes of any discomfort. Some conditions may also be contraindicated to treatment.

Is a referral required?
Patients being treated under WorkSafe, TAC, DVA and EPC plans (chronic disease management plans) must have current GP referrals and claim numbers prior to making appointments.

Can I bring my child with me while I have treatment?
Your children may accompany you to the clinic, however they are your responsibility and should be with you at all times. Children left in the waiting area will be unsupervised. Where possible, Inner West Health Clinic requests that you make alternate arrangements for the care of your children during treatment as we can’t supervise them during this time and do not take responsibility for them while in the clinic.
