Fees

Nowra Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic is connected to HICAPS so patients are able to claim directly through their health funds. We accept cash, cheque, EFTPOS, Visa and MasterCard. Patients Medicare Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Program have a small gap payment and DVA patients are bulk billed directly, Third Party and WorkCover claims are invoiced directly to the appropriate third party.

Referrals

Physiotherapists are Primary Care Practitioners and the general public does not require a medical referral for treatment of non compensateable injuries. A referral from a medical Practitioner is required for treatment for compensateable injuries such as WorkCover, motor vehicle accidents and EPCs.
