FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics has onsite HICAPS claiming available at all of our clinics. This allows you to swipe your private health card immediately following your consultation to save you from having to contact your health fund directly. Once the private health card has been processed, a gap fee will likely be remaining, in which case we accept cash, card or cheque for the remaining fee.

For the majority, no referral is required from a GP to see our Podiatrist and appointments can be made directly onsite. The exception being those patients who are eligible for an EPC ‘Enhanced Primary Care’ plan or a Veterans Affairs gold or white card. These appointments are bulk billed however do require a valid referral by your GP prior to your initial consultation. The EPC program entitles eligible patients for a maximum of 5 visits to a Podiatrist each year. Whether you are eligible or not, is dependent on your GP and is generally utilized for patients who suffer from chronic diseases such as Diabetes and Arthritis.
