You don’t need a GP/specialist referral to see a speech pathologist in Warners Bay or Cessnock. However, Medicare rebates are only available to those clients with a GP referral for Enhanced Primary Care Plan/Chronic Disease Management Plan. This plan is only available for certain clients but will provide you with access to up to 5 appointments, where a rebate of $53.80 can be applied. Talk to your GP to find out if you are eligible.
