Important announcement regarding patients seeing Sports Physicians!

 

Sports and Exercise Medicine has recently been accepted as one of Australia's new Medical Specialist groups. Whilst this is more of a bureaucratic decision, it has important implications on patients seeing Sports Physicians.

From the 1st November 2010, patients seeing Sports Physicians will require a current letter of referral from either a GP or other Medical Specialist, if they are to be eligible for a Medicare rebate.

The BSEMS staff will be able to tell you whether you have a current letter of referral when you book or confirm your appointment. If you require any aid or a letter to your GP explaining the need for referral, we will be happy to forward this to you. We apologize for any inconvenience this abrupt change may cause in the short term.
