What To Expect During Your Visit
SERVICES WE OFFER
Soft tissue therapy
DO YOU ACCEPT HEALTH FUND, MEDICARE PLANS, AND DVA PLANS?
We are HICAPS capable. This means we can swipe your Private Health Fund card and claim on the spot. You just pay the gap!
We also accept Medicare plans which are provided to you by your family doctor or GP; and are providers under the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) Treatment program, and can treat those eligible under this scheme.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY CHIRO VISIT?
It is not required but if you have any of the following, bring them along to your appointment:
Any X-Rays or Scans relevant to your pain or discomfort
A doctor's referral letter, if provided
Your Private Health Fund card
Pension card, if applicable
NOTE: Scans and X-Rays, and Referrals are not required for treatment at Kingsford Chiropractic
WHAT IS YOUR NEW PATIENT PROCEDURE?
As a new patient, there will be a form to fill out before your appointment.
You will then sit with the Chiropractor to discuss your condition and answer some questions about your medical health. This is a good time to show your Chiropractor any X-Rays or Scans.
Your Chiropractor will then conduct an assessment on the areas discussed and begin the treatment accordingly.
You can expect your first appointment to take roughly 30mins.
I HAVE A WORKERS COMPENSATION CLAIM. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
For any patients (new or existing) who are visiting us under a Compulsory Third Party (CTP) or Worker's Compensation Claim, there are a few things we will need from you!
We will need the details of the Insurance company your claim is handled by, the case managers name and phone number, and any other important details they may have provided you.
It is helpful to have this information handy when you come in for your first visit after your injury. However if this is not possible, please discuss with the receptionist what your next steps will be.
