Is Podiatry covered by Medicare / bulk-billed?

Yes, but not for all patients. Medicare coverage for Podiatry is available through the Medicare Enhanced Primare Care (EPC) program. GPs are able to refer patients with chronic illnesses or disabilities, such as Diabetes, for a certain number of visits per year. Please discuss with your GP to find out your eligibility.

Do I need a referral to see a Podiatrist?

No, referrals are not required to visit a Podiatrist. However for Medicare Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) or Department of Veterens' Affairs (DVA) services, a referral is required from a GP.
