 The Process for a CDM

There are a number of services available to clients under an EPC plan. The Wellness Team offers:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Dietetics
  • Referral

    A CDM requires a referral from your GP. They will complete a full assessment and fill out a Team Care Arrangement and GP Management Plan – this will include sections on your needs, goals, how to achieve those goals through actions, treatments and services and who will be providing those services.

  • Appointment

    Once you have a copy of your EPC and TCA and we have accepted the outlined treatment goals, you may book in for your sessions. Medicare will pay a fee towards your treatment and you will need to pay the gap. Please bring a copy of your referral, your Medicare Card and a payment method for the gap.
