sportsmed is also a Bupa Members First Healthcare Provider for allied health services, ensuring patients with Bupa private health receive exclusive benefits including more money back on claims. Please note podiatry services are not included in this offer.
Physiotherapy services at our Blackwood and Morphett Vale locations are also a part of the Health Partners network. Health Partners members will pay just $12 a visit* for physiotherapy consultations, while they will have access to a higher limit to be covered for more treatment.
Health Partners members are also entitled to a special promotion for podiatry services where they will pay only $20 for a consult**.
A GP referral is only required if you wish to make an appointment with one of our orthopaedic surgeons.
Generally health funds will cover a percentage of the cost for consultations or hospital admissions at sportsmed. We recommend you check your level of cover to know exactly what you are entitled for each visit and the gap you may be expected to pay. Any gap payments are expected to be settled on the day of consultation.
We provide onsite HICAPS and ask that all accounts are settled on the day of consultation via EFT, Visa Card, Mastercard, AMEX, cheque or cash.
*Initial and subsequent consults on Top and National Extras cover with a Health Partners Participating General Physio. A higher gap payment may apply if you choose to see a Qualified Master’s Physio, up to annual limits. Waiting periods may apply.
