Early referral to hand therapy is encouraged to ensure optimal results.

  • Private patients – No referral required.  Private patients with private health extras cover for Occupational Therapy are eligible for a rebate from their health fund.  There will be some out of pocket expenses for the Hand Therapy consultation as well as any consumables, such as splints and dressings.
  • Workcover patients – Workcover patients require a current Work Capacity Certificate.
  • DVA patients – A GP referral (D904) is needed.  DVA will cover all costs for Gold card holders and specific conditions for White card holders.
  • Medicare – Patients whose hand condition is related to a chronic medical condition may be eligible for a Medicare rebate under the Enhanced Primary Care Scheme – A GP referral and care plan is needed.  Our practice charges a small gap payment for EPC patients.
