How Online Exercise Physiology Works For You
Each EP session is unique.
There’s no standard when it comes to what our prior relationship to exercise has been, and where we want to, or need to challenge ourselves.
Our EP’s have experience in providing you with one on one sessions where you can bring all that you need into a safe space.
Here in your safe space we work with you to identify what we can change with the power of exercise and movement to achieve what you want to.
From this safe space you can start to layer on challenge and exercises as you step up to your goal. Your EP will be there to guide you through the tough spells, and celebrate your victories with you along the way.
We use a secure video platform for our online exercise physiology consultations.
You will be provided a link to a digital waiting room to access at the time of your consultation where your exercise physiologist will be there to greet you and commence your session at the start time.
Prior to your first consultation an email will be sent out requesting some information about what you’re looking to achieve so that we can move through the session as efficiently and effectively as possible.
After your first session is finished we will email you your action plan for you to work on. You’ll be provided an exercise plan with videos or images depending on your needs.
We know consistency and support is needed when we’re embarking on a journey to achieve a goal.
There will be some behaviours that need changing.
Some habits that need to be formed or broken.
During this time it’s crucial to have access to your exercise physiologist for support.
With online exercise physiology, this is simple. You don’t need to jump in your car or on the tram for your session, you can simply book a time that suits you and your EP will be there.
We understand if you’re unsure about an online exercise physiology session. It’s a very new concept to many people out there which is why we offer our initial session completely free of charge.
Then, to ensure that you’re supported through your journey to achieving your goals we have an online exercise access plan for you.
Our incredible value follow up consultations are where you can access your online EP two times a week for only $49 total.
That means for your $49 you will have 2 further sessions with your online EP in the week to check in, adjust, inform, coach or review your progress and ensure you’re remaining on track.
Medicare for Online Exercise Physiology
Currently we bulk bill online exercise physiology sessions so that there is no out of pocket expense.
There are some strict eligibility requirements via medicare however. You must have a chronic medical condition and a GPMP/TCA (a GP Management Plan with Team Care Arrangements) active with your local doctor. Then, you must have a referral written to our online EP’s.
There is a maximum of 5 sessions per year covered by medicare which is for all allied health.
This means if you have already seen (in person or online) a podiatrist, physio, or other allied health profession those consultations would be counted in the 5 total.
There is a medicare rebate for people with type 2 diabetes however at this time it is only available for in clinic sessions. If this is you please contact us or book an in clinic session with our EP’s.
Private Health Insurance for Online Exercise Physiology
There are not currently any rebates available in Australia for online EP via private health insurers.
Department of Veterans Affairs
