What You Can Claim

As an osteopathic patient, you may be able to claim a rebate from a range of government agencies or private health insurers. Requirements and rebates vary across programs so please discuss with your GP, case manager, or osteopath.

Medicare

You can receive a Medicare rebate for an osteopathic service if you are a patient in the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program and you may receive a rebate for some X-rays referred by an osteopath

National Disability Insurance Scheme

NDIS clients who self-manage an individualised funding package must consult their scheme case manager to determine if osteopathic services are appropriate to be funded under the NDIS

Workcover Schemes

Osteopaths are eligible to provide workplace injury management services in each Australian state and territory

Motor Vehicle Accident Schemes

Each state and territory in Australia operates a scheme for people injured in a motor vehicle under Compulsory Third Party arrangements

Veterans Affairs

To access DVA services, you need a referral from a GP, specialist, treating hospital doctor, a hospital discharge planner, or an osteopath with a current referral

Private Health Insurance

Osteopathy rebates are available from most private health insurers
