Dietetic service is offered at the St Leonards clinic. Consultation fees vary by the duration of the appointment. To find out more, please contact us on 1300 742 787. Alternatively use our online ‘contact us’ form to write to us if that is easier.
At Sydney Paediatric Gastro we accept Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDMP) (earlier referred as Enhanced Primary Care Plan) and Team Care Arrangement (TCA) which will entitle you to a Medicare rebate through your GP. Please discuss with your GP if you are eligible for this. As this is a specialised service, we do not bulk-bill. Thus, out of pocket expenses apply for the initial and extended follow up consults.
As a part of this team care approach, we will send a report of the assessment and nutritional intervention plan to your GP.
Full payment is required at the time of the appointment before you receive your rebate from Medicare. The current rebate amount is $52.95, for up to 5 dietetic consultations in a calendar year.
It is essential that you fax/email a copy of the care plan when making an appointment as well as bring the copy to your initial appointment to be eligible for rebates.
Private Health Fund Rebates
Rebates vary between health funds and so it is best to contact your health fund to find out your level of cover and determine what you are eligible for.
Please provide 24 hours of notice if you are unable to make a scheduled appointment. This allows an opportunity for other individuals to have your appointment slot. Cancellations with less than 24 hours of notice will incur a $50 cancellation fee. Failure to attend an appointment (with no notice given) will incur a fee equivalent to the full cost of the appointment.
