How can I get a CARE PLAN?

Only the GP can determine whether you are eligible and that you meet the criteria for a Medicare Care Plan (Chronic Disease Management Plan, Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC) or Mental Health Care Plan).


A chronic medical condition is one of the criteria, for example a diagnosed medical condition that has been (and/or likely to be) present for six months or longer. 


Your GP will specify the appropriate service, and number of services for your allied health care plan. This can be discussed at the time of your consult with your GP.
