General Information
Allied health and nursing services can play a key role in the treatment, management and prevention of many medical conditions. The allied health professionals and nursing staff at The Summit Health Centre work closely with the GPs and medical specialists in the Centre to ensure a multidisciplinary and integrated approach is taken towards assisting your health and wellbeing.

There may be eligibility criteria that you need to meet in order access some of the services provided by the government (SA Health) and non-government service (Summit Health Mental Health & Counselling services).

Depending on the service you are receiving there may be a payment required for seeing your allied health professional or nurse.  Services provided by Summit Health mental health and counselling services do not incur a fee . Please check specific services information profiles for billing details.

Private Health Rebates
Most private health insurance policies offer rebates for various allied health services through “Extras” cover. The rebate amount is dependent on the type and level of your insurance cover.  If you maintain private health, we recommend you enquire with your insurer to determine the scope of coverage for allied health services, under your policy.

Medicare Rebates
Medicare rebates apply to patients with a GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangement or Mental Health Care Plan that has been prepared by their GP. An eligible patient needs to have been referred by their GP for the specific allied health services recommended in their care plan. Eligible patients can receive a maximum of 5 allied health consultations per calendar year (up to 10 for Mental Health Care Plan psychology services).
