Fees and Billing Arrangements
Fees are payable at the time of consultation by cash, MasterCard or Visa. The Australian Physiotherapy Association – Physiotherapy Service Descriptors form the basis of our billing.
This practice is able to directly bill for Worker’s Compensation and Third Party Compensation Claims, Enhanced Primary Care Plans (EPC) and for Department of Veterans’ Affairs Clients once the required information is provided to our reception staff.

It’s easy to make a physiotherapy appointment. You don’t need a referral from your GP or specialist. You can just call 08 8331 0552 and book yourself in, or use our online portal.
Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred time and preferred physiotherapist. Initial appointments are 40 minutes and standard appointments 20 minutes. If you have a new problem or it has been more than 3 months since your last appointment, a longer appointment may be necessary. Longer consultation times are available, so please ask our receptionists if you require some extra time.
At Vital Core physiotherapy we see a lot of different conditions. Many are extremely complex (especially pelvic floor problems). As a result we have different appointment durations depending on the condition. When you make your appointment, our receptionist will ask for a little bit of information about your problem. This will ensure you are booked in with the right physiotherapist and for the right amount of time.
Please notify reception if you are unable to attend your next scheduled appointment as soon as you are able. If an appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, a cancellation fee of the full cost of your missed consultation will be charged.
