Can I use my private health Insurance?
Providing accessible and effective care to all of our patients is our top priority. Many podiatry treatments are claimable for those with private health insurance (with relevant extra covers). In order to do same day claiming, please remember to bring your private health insurance card to your appointment. Your clinician will be able to manage your private health insurance balance, claims and payments easily. On the spot claiming will significantly reduce your out of pocket expense. Clear Step Podiatry and its podiatrists are affiliated with registered private health insurance companies including NIB, Southern Cross Health Society.
Do I need a referral to see a podiatrist?
A referral provides us with a basic summary of the concern, results obtained to date, as well as any specific requests. We can provide a tailored care plan and liaise closely with your preferred doctor. However, a referral from a doctor is not necessary. If you have been given a referral for podiatry and need to make an appointment you can contact Clear Step Podiatry by calling your nearest clinic directly on 64 9801 2211.
