WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS POLICY
Saturday appointments are available by special request. Please contact our office to book. Due to the limited availability of these appointments, clients must pay the full consultation fee in advance either over the phone or through our invoicing system via eWay online payments. This payment is NOT refundable if the appointment is cancelled within 24 hours. Bulk billing is not available for these appointments.
Medicare rebates are only available for certain dietetics services, not with services from a nutritionist. They are available for patients with chronic conditions and complex care needs with a referral from their GP. To be eligible for a rebate, clients must book in with a dietitian and have one of the following Chronic Disease Management reports provided by their GP:
- A GP Management Plan (GPMP) – item 721
- Team Care Arrangement (TCA) – item 723
The Medicare rebate for dietetic services is $52.95 and is available for a maximum of five services per patient each calendar year. Additional services are not possible in any circumstances. For clients who meet the above criteria, The Healthy Eating Hub policy for Medicare rebates is as follows:
First consultations – Clients will be asked to pay the full cost of the consultation and a Medicare rebate will be refunded into their bank account either through the HICAPS machine or through manual claiming. To receive the rebate on the spot you must have your bank account registered with Medicare.
Second consultations / 1 hour support consultations – Clients will be asked to pay the full cost of the consultation and a Medicare rebate will be refunded into their bank account either through the HICAPS machine or through manual claiming. To receive the rebate on the spot you must have your bank account registered with Medicare.
Bulk Billed 30 minute support consultations – Clients will have no out-of-pocket expenses and bulk billing will occur through the HICAPS machine.
We are not able to provide DVA claiming for appointments.
PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE REBATES
If you have private health insurance, any appointment made with one of our dietitians is eligible to receive a rebate from your insurer. HICAPS facilities are available at our practice which allows us to offer a rebate at the point of sale. All you have to do is pay the gap.
The amount you are able to claim with your private health insurer will depend on your level of cover. You can enquire with your private health insurer prior to your consultation if you wish. Simply provide your insurer with the cost of the consultation and the HICAPS item number below to find out how much you will be required to pay.
HICAPS item number:
- First Consultation: 500
- Second and Support consultations: 600
Referrals for pathology are for The Healthy Eating Hub’s existing clients. To receive a pathology referral client’s must have attended a first consultation.
Whether a client will need to attend a subsequent consultation to receive a referral or collect their results, is at their practitioner’s discretion.
Pathology tests must be paid for in full at the time of referral, either over the phone or in person.
Medicare does not cover pathology tests referred from nutritionists and dietitians. Private health insurers may cover biochemistry testing. Please contact your insurer for more information. Private health insurance claims for biochemistry cannot be processed through our HICAPs machine.

Information Provided on Site
All information provided by us on the Website is provided in good faith. We derive our information from sources which we believe to be accurate and up to date as at the date of publication.

In addition, we do not make any representations or warranties that any information we provide is reliable, accurate or complete and we make no guarantees of any specific result from use of this Website or the information service provided through it. We are not liable for any loss arising from any action taken or reliance by you on any information or material posted by us.
Nutritional information provided on the Website is taken from sources provided by third parties, including the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) NUTTAB 2010 guide to nutrient content. Before relying on any nutritional information on the Website, you should carefully evaluate the accuracy, completeness and relevance of this information for your purposes, and consider the need to obtain appropriate expert advice relevant to your circumstances. FSANZ has made considerable effort to ensure the quality of information in NUTTAB 2010, however, none of FSANZ, THEH or any other provider of nutritional information on the Website gives any warranty that the information is free from error or suitable for your purposes.
There are limitations associated with food composition databases. Nutrient data published in a database such as NUTTAB 2010 may represent an average of the nutrient content of a particular sample of foods and ingredients, determined at a particular time. The nutrient composition of foods and ingredients can vary substantially between batches and brands because of a number of factors, including changes in season, changes in formulation, processing practices and ingredient source. While most of the data contained in NUTTAB 2010 are generated from analysed values, some of the data are borrowed from overseas food composition tables; supplied by the food industry; taken from food labels; imputed from similar foods; or calculated using a recipe approach.
You require a moderate level of fitness to participate in our information service. Persons with pre-existing medical conditions, in poor health, or with any concerns as to commencement of new fitness regime should consult with an appropriate healthcare professional before beginning any fitness program. You are responsible to make your own inquiries and seek independent advice from a healthcare professional before acting on any information or material made available to you through our Website. Our information service may not be suitable to your particular circumstances and is not a substitute for obtaining specific advice from a qualified health care professional. In particular, we strongly advise the following classes of persons firstly consult a healthcare professional (this list is non-exhaustive):

persons recovering from or recently recovered from illness or injury; and
persons with a low body mass index.
You acknowledge that, by participating in our information service, you are doing so voluntarily and, depending on your particular circumstances, there may be risks to your health. You further acknowledge that these risks may be caused by your own acts or omissions, or those of other users of the Website, or may be risks that are not known to you or are not readily foreseeable at the time of using the information service. This is a risk warning pursuant to the Australian Consumer Law. You assume all risks in connection with your participation in our information service. To the extent permitted by law, we exclude any express or implied warranties of reasonable care and skill.
