What are MV (Motor Vehicle) patients?

Have you been in a car accident? The first thing to do is to see your GP at your earliest convenience. You may be eligible for Third Party Insurance physiotherapy. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, a Compulsory Third Party insurer will cover the cost of your physiotherapy services.

If your GP deems it appropriate they will then write a referral for you to receive physiotherapy treatment. You must have a GP referral for your treatment to be covered by the CTP (Compulsory Third Party). You cannot self-refer under the Third Party Insurance claim.

Please bring along to your initial consultation:

  • Your general practitioner referral
  • Your CTP (Compulsory Third Party) claim number
  • Your insurance company details including case manager name, contact details (email, address, phone number) and billing details
  • Any relevant tests or scans

What are WC (Workers compensation) patients?

Work-related injuries can be billed directly to your employer’s workers compensation insurers. You will need to see your GP who can start the process of referral to us. You will need to bring your referral form from your doctor indicating physiotherapy treatment has been prescribed. Once we have the referral, your workers compensation claim number and have confirmed this with your workers compensation insurance company we will bill your insurer directly.

Complex workers management, review and Second Opinion

Within the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA), exists 3 tiers of Physiotherapists. These include APA Physiotherapist, APA Titled Physiotherapist and Specialist Physiotherapist (Fellow of Australian College of Physiotherapists).

The Specialist physiotherapist are considered the expert and leaders in the industry. In the field of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy less than 70 people hold Specialist Title (As awarded by Australian College of Physiotherapist) in Australia.

At Modern Physiotherapy Clinic we have a full-time Specialist physiotherapist working in South Perth. We offer second opinion service for people who have complex conditions, not improving with current therapy, would like clear treatment plan or just want to optimise their recovery.

Consider Second opinion if:
  • You are not getting improvement with current therapy
  • Unsure about current diagnosis
  • Don’t have a treatment plan or prognosis
  • Expert opinion of contributing factors

Do you need a Doctors referral?

Yes. A referral is necessary, patients do not need a referral to see a specialist, but they do need one to receive the relevant Medicare rebate, insurance cover claims and other benefits.

All legal requirements relating to referrals can be found in Health Insurance Act 1973 and Health Insurance Regulations 1975. The law states that a referral is valid for a single course of treatment for a period of 12 months after the first service given in accordance with the referral.

Who is responsible for bills?

The Modern Physiotherapy team communicate directly to insurance companies, making your experience a lot easier and less stressful.

Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle Accident bills will be sent directly to the appropriate body by the Modern Physiotherapy team, provided that patents have given us the appropriate billing information and paperwork.

Who can attend the sessions?

We encourage family members and health professionals to attend the sessions. Second opinion could be a one off session.

Many thanks to Physiotherapist Tak for treating me urgently last weekend. Having experienced crippling, sudden lower back, I was promptly treated and provided with effective rehabilitation homework that was simple and easy to fit into my daily schedule. I left feeling educated about my issue and will use this knowledge to work to avoid injury in the future. Thank you!

Caring people also mixed with the most knowledgeable physiotherapist in this place makes no choice, but choosing them to go to, when you are in pain.

I have had a long history of pain after a car accident many years ago. I have widespread chronic pain syndrome, which means I have moderate to severe pain each day. When the pain becomes unmanageable, I see Sam who I call "the magic man" and he relieves my pain within one or two consultations. I don't recommend unless I am very certain. Sam is the real thing. He works magic.

I normally hate exercise but I have at last found something I am enjoying thanks to Tak. The class is always slightly different, I get bored easily. I feel Tak is non judgemental with my abilities, or lack of. Since starting a few weeks ago the strength in my left arm has improved so much. I had my lymph nodes removed from the left arm pit after breast cancer. I would recommend the classes to anyone, no matter age or ability you will be bound to see / feel some improvemnet.
