Best physio care Brisbane

Physiotherapy fees vary depending on the physiotherapist's level of experience, service provided and time spent.


Physiotherapy fees in Brisbane range from $75 to $180 for 30 minute appointments. For most people, our treatment compared to using only hands-on treatment results in shorter recovery times. This means fewer visits and lower costs to you overall.

From 1 July 2024, we will be increasing our 30 minute and 45 minute session fees. The new fees are:

  • 30 minutes: $135

  • 45 minutes: $173

Home visits, NDIS plan managed and CTP (motor vehicle accidents) clients: Please contact us for information on our fee schedule.

*Please note: If you're seeing us with a team care plan / chronic disease management plan, the current Medicare rebate is $58.3. You pay our fees in full, and we can put your claim through to Medicare on the same or the next business day. For example, your out of pocket fee for our initial appointment is $158 - $58.3 = $99.7. Before you book with us, if you are unsure, please check with Medicare that you have sufficient referral sessions available and your bank account details are up to date, as we are not responsible for ensuring that you receive a Medicare rebate. Please note if you use the team care plan/chronic disease management plan, you won't be able to claim private health insurance for the same session.


No private health rebates are available for these classes


Please advise us of any cancellations as early as possible. If you are unable to attend an appointment please give us at least 24 hours notice of non-attendance, otherwise a fee will be charged. If your appointment is on a Monday, please cancel by midday on the previous Saturday as we do not open on Sundays. Late cancellations will be charged the full session fee unless we can fill the spot from our waitlist.

Private health insurance

Clients can claim private health insurance rebates for our services if they are appropriately covered. Please check with your private health provider if you have cover for physiotherapy, and if so, how much. If you bring in your private health insurance card, we can check for you exactly how much will be covered by your insurer.

Our initial consultations have the HICAPS code '500'. Follow up consultations - '505'; and long consults - '506'.

Private Health Insurace Fees


Breathe Physio & Pilates is not a registered provider with the NDIA. However, you can access physiotherapy services from Breathe Physio & Pilates if your plan is either “Self-Managed” or “Plan Managed”.


WorkCover claims

Breathe Physio & Pilates welcome patients with WorkCover claims. For us to directly bill WorkCover you must have an accepted claim. Please also bring these two documents to your physiotherapy appointment:


  • Evidence of accepted WorkCover Queensland claim with a claim number. If you have submitted your claim in the last few days, it is likely still pending approval from WorkCover Queensland. We can treat WorkCover patients with a pending claim, but you will be responsible for covering the cost of the appointment as a private client before your claim is accepted by WorkCover Qld. 

  • A current medical certificate from your GP. If your physiotherapy appointments fall outside the dates of the medical certificate, you will need to return to your GP and obtain a new certificate.

DVA cardholders

Breathe Physio & Pilates is happy to provide services to clients who hold a DVA White Card or DVA Gold Card. Receiving treatment as a DVA client is different to receiving treatment as a private client, so take note of the following:


To receive DVA subsidised services, you will require a referral from your GP stating how many sessions you need and what your assessed problems and goals are. A DVA client is eligible for 12 sessions of physiotherapy per referral before a new referral needs to be written. It is important to have this ready when you meet your physiotherapist - it's how we bill for our services. 


DVA clients should also present:

  •  Valid (non-expired) White or Gold card

  •  I.D. containing date of birth, and your full name.

DVA Fees


If you have a referral from the GP (known as a Team Care Plan or a Chronic Disease Management Plan), you can use it to partially cover the cost of your appointment. Your Doctor may be able to give you up to 5 sessions of physiotherapy in a calendar year under the Team Care Plan or Chronic Disease Management Plan. Your out of pocket fee is our usual fee minus the Medicare rebate which is currently $58.3. For example, an initial appointment is $158, the Medicare rebate is $58.3, your out of pocket cost is $99.7.


Please keep in mind there are no further Medicare rebates or private health insurance claims available on your out of pocket cost. If you're unsure, please check that you have enough sessions left before you book with us.
