Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a referral to see a physio?
|Anyone can see a physiotherapist without a referral. However, if you have a WorkCover injury or wish to claim through Medicare's EPC program or DVA, you will need a referral from your GP.|
What should I bring to my first appointment?
|Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time to complete some simple paperwork.
Useful things to bring if you have them include:
Are you registered with NDIS?
|Yes! All of our physios are registered with NDIA/NDIS and can help with most physical issues including painful muscles and joints, poor mobility and weakness/deconditioning. If you are unsure whether we can help in your situation, feel free to call and ask to speak to one of our physios in more detail.|
Are you open late or on weekends?
Yes, we are happy to provide physio services on Saturday mornings from 8am - 1pm. We also have late physio appointments after business hours through the week to accommodate those who can't make regular times.|
Our opening hours are:
Weekdays: 8.00am - 6.00pm
Limited appointments outside these hours may also be available on request.
How much does a Physio session cost?
|Prices as at April 2021:|
Initial Consultation - $90.00
Standard Consultation - $80.00
Extended Consultation (1hr) - $135
These prices are up to $30 cheaper than other physio practices in Newcastle!
Can I use my Health Fund?
|Yes - At Fix It Physiotherapy we are registered with HICAPS, which means if you have a health fund, you can swipe your card to instantly claim your benefits. We are a preferred provider for Bupa, Medibank and HCF meaning you pay less per visit if you're in one of these funds! For any gap payment or if you are not covered by a health fund, you can pay by Cash, Bank Card, Visa or Mastercard.|
Do you Bulk Bill?
|Unfortunately at the current time we are unable to bulk bill physio sessions. We do accept care plans, but there is an out of pocket fee of $10 for those with a care plan referral, which we think is still amazing value.|
|Fix It Physiotherapy may charge a fee of $30 if you don't come to your scheduled appointment. We get quite busy and physio appointments are in high demand so please consider that someone else is waiting in line for your spot! Adverse circumstances will be excused but please call to let us know as soon as you realise that you can't possibly make your appointment so that we can offer your appointment to someone else!|
