You do not need a doctors referral to make an appointment at By the Bay Podiatry. Most private health funds cover Podiatric services and orthotics under their ancillary tables.

By the Bay Podiatry bulk bills all appointments referred under a Enhanced primary care plan or “EPC” or Team care arrangement or chronic disease management plan which is a set up by your doctor through Medicare. Consult with your GP to find out whether you would be eligible for this scheme.

For return service men and women or DVA patients whether on a gold or white card need to obtain a doctors referral for their appointments and other services we can provide to be claimed under the DVA.
