FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics Referrals Accepted


Medicare rebates are available for eligible people who are currently managed by their doctor under an “Enhanced Primary Care Plan”. This care plan enables a maximum of 5 visits to a Podiatrist or other allied health professionals in a 12 month period. People with complex care needs or chronic health conditions such as diabetes and arthritis, may be eligible for a Medicare rebate. This will need to be discussed with your GP and a specific referral will be required to enable the fee to be claimed through Medicare.


People who hold a Department of Veterans’ Affairs gold card or podiatry related white card are fully covered for our services, but will require an initial referral from their doctor.


The Nation Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to eligible people with disability to gain more time with family and friends, greater independence, access to new skills, jobs, or volunteering in their community, and an improved quality of life.

The NDIS also connects anyone with disability to services in their community, this includes allied health such as Podiatry. A participant’s NDIS funding can be managed 3 ways: Self Managed, Plan managed or Agency Managed. As a Registered provider, FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics can assist NDIS participants between the ages 7-65, regardless of how their funding is managed.
