Medicare physiotherapy item price rise
Medicare has implemented small price rises on items after a freeze on rates for many years.
The Enhanced Primary Care plan has increased from $52.95 to $53.80 (physio item code 10960)
The physiotherapy items for children with current or previous access to Betterstart of Fahcsia funding, has increased from $74.80 to $86.15. This reduces the gap fee for people who are privately funding their sessions. Betterstart allows their funding to be used to pay the gap fee, however NDIS does not.
