Careplans for chronic medical conditions:

If you have a chronic condition that requires ongoing treatment from a multidisciplinary team then you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Careplan.

This team may include medical specialists as well as allied health professionals.

A CDM Care plan enables you to access 5 Medicare rebatable allied health visits per calendar year., which may include services from a:

Physiotherapist
Dietitian
Podiatrist
Osteopath
Occupational Therapist
Exercise Physiologist
Diabetes Educator
Chiropractor, or
Psychologist

This careplan will require a 30-45 minute appointment with your usual Doctor to discuss the role of each allied health professional as well as to discuss your role in optimising your chronic condition through understanding the use of your medications and aiming for a healthy lifestyle.

Your Doctor is happy to answer any queries you may have regarding your chronic condition during this careplan.
