If you suffer from a chronic disease (such as diabetes or arthritis) which affects your feet, your General Practitioner(GP) may put you on a Team Care Plan. Under this plan, Podiatry can be covered by Medicare. If you are having trouble looking after your feet,discuss this matter with your Doctor(GP) at your next appointment.
For example: Mr. Smith is a 62 yr old gentleman who has recently had a hip replacement. He finds it difficult to bend down and cut his toe-nails. Furthermore, Mr Smith has diabetes. This places him at a higher risk of infection in case something goes wrong while he is cutting his toe-nails.If Mr Smith discusses this concern with his Doctor(GP),the Doctor may nominate him to be a part of the Team Care Plan under which Mr Smith could be entitled to up to 5 visits to the Podiatrist in a year. This plan is revised annually.
