Family Circle Medical Practice: Providing Compassionate Care

At Family Circle Medical Practice, we believe it’s both a privilege and an honour to provide assistance during times of need.

We understand the financial strain faced by our aged pensioners and extend a significant discount for accessing our services. Additionally, we are committed to bulk billing health assessments and the quarterly care plans for our patients registered with MyMedicare.

For added convenience, if you have linked your bank details with Medicare, your rebate can be efficiently claimed at the conclusion of your consultation. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure your bank details are lodged with Medicare.

Patients without a Medicare card will be kindly requested to settle the full consultation fee on the day of their visit.

We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to care for you and your family, prioritising your health and well-being. Thank you for entrusting us with your care.

Managing Chronic Disease with Health Assessments, GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangement

Living with a chronic disease can be challenging, but with proper management and support, you can lead a fulfilling life while effectively managing your condition. Your General Practitioner (GP) is here to assist you in creating a comprehensive plan tailored to your individual needs through a GP Management Plan (GPMP) and Team Care Arrangement.

What is a GP Management Plan (GPMP)? A GP Management Plan (GPMP) is a personalized care plan designed to assist patients with chronic diseases. These plans typically involve an initial longer appointment each year, followed by up to three review appointments throughout the year. During these appointments, you and your GP/nurse will discuss your condition, set goals, and outline strategies for managing your health effectively.

Key Components of a GPMP:

  • Discussion of your chronic condition and its management.
  • Setting specific health goals.
  • Planning for regular follow-up and review appointments.
  • Coordination of care with other healthcare providers.
  • Renewal of referrals and prescriptions related to your chronic disease.

What is a Team Care Arrangement? A Team Care Arrangement is an extension of your GPMP that allows referrals to Allied Health Professionals, such as Dieticians, Podiatrists, and Physiotherapists. Under this arrangement, you are entitled to a total of five Allied Health visits per year (with exceptions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who may be eligible for ten visits).

Why are Health Assessments Important? Health assessments, conducted by your GP, help evaluate your overall health status and well-being along the health continuum. These assessments are essential for identifying potential health risks, monitoring your condition, and ensuring that you receive appropriate care and support.

Types of Health Assessments:

  • Medicare items 701 to 707: General, time-tiered health assessment items.
  • Medicare item 715: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Assessment.

Managing a chronic disease requires ongoing support and coordination of care. Your GP is committed to providing you with the necessary resources and assistance through GP Management Plans, Team Care Arrangements, and health assessments. By actively participating in these initiatives, you can take control of your health and enhance your overall well-being. For further information or to schedule an appointment, please contact our clinic. Your health and well-being are our top priorities.

Care Plans and Health Assessments are bulk billed.
