Chronic Disease Management Care Plan
Anyone who has a chronic medical condition that has been, or is likely to be, present for six months or longer, may be eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Care Plan.
A chronic disease is an illness that usually isn’t curable, doesn’t go away, but can be managed with various types of treatment.
A few of the commonly referred to Chronic Diseases include: diabetes, chronic kidney disease, heart disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and chronic lung conditions (asthma or emphysema).
Your GP, along with allied health professionals, can tailor a Care Plan to suit your needs and you may qualify for Medicare rebates for some allied health visits.
Care Plans are BULK BILLED to all current Medicare Card holders.
