In general, chiropractic and physiotherapy, like osteopathy or dental care, are not covered by Medicare. In certain circumstances, particularly if you suffer from a chronic medical condition, you may be able to claim up to five treatments under a government program using what is commonly called an EPC plan or the ‘Chronic Disease Allied Health (Individual) Services under Medicare’ program (what a mouthful!). Speak to your general practitioner to discuss whether this might be applicable to you. If it is, you will require a care plan to be completed by your GP.
