Best physio care Brisbane
Physiotherapy fees vary depending on the level of experience, service provided and time spent.
Physiotherapy fees in Brisbane range from $110 to $190 for a 45 minute appointment; $75 to $170 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 cost to you overall.
Home visits, NDIS plan managed and CTP (motor vehicle accidents): Please contact us for information on our fee schedule.
*Please note: If you're seeing Winnie using an EPC/team care plan, your out of pocket fee will be $100 for a 45 minute appointment and $70 for a 30 minute appointment. Medicare rebate is $58.
No private health rebates are available for these classes
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. Cancellations within 24 hours will be charged the full session fee.
Please advise us of any cancellations as early as possible, as we often have long waiting lists for appointments which are not always able to be filled on short notice.
Private health insurance
Clients can claim private health insurance rebates for our services if they are appropriately covered. Please note we're not responsible for ensuring you receive your private health insurance rebate - 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'.
Breathe Physio & Pilates is not a registered provider with the NDIA and is therefore not regulated by its provider policies. However, the NDIA can approve the use of funds for clients accessing physiotherapy services from Breathe Physio & Pilates if your plan is either “Self-Managed” or “Plan Managed”. We follow the NDIS price guide for plan managed participants.
We have a range of equipment and mobility aids that could be funded by the NDIS. If you are an NDIS participant, please feel free to contact us.
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.
If you prefer treatment in the comfort of your own home, Breathe Physio & Pilates provide a home visit service. We also provide hydrotherapy at a pool close to our practice. Funding is available through the NDIS and Home Care Packages; or you can pay for a home visit or hydrotherapy outright.
Breathe Physio & Pilates works with NDIS plan managers and Home Care Package coordinators to deliver quality treatment. Contact us for our fees for home service and hydrotherapy. Travel costs will be shown clearly on our invoice.
We offer detailed assessment reports and provide recommendations for further treatment and management (fees apply). Reports are sent promptly and in most cases, completed within 5 business days of request.
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. If you do not have a referral, you will not be able to access DVA-subsidised physiotherapy.
DVA clients must also present:
Valid (non-expired) White or Gold card
I.D. containing date of birth, and your full name.
If you cannot provide these details, you will not be eligible for subsidised rates at the time of your appointment. You will still be able to access physiotherapy services at standard rates, and you will still be provided with receipts
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 can give you up to 5 sessions of physiotherapy in a calendar year under the Team Care Plan or Chronic Disease Management Plan. For physiotherapists other than Winnie, we provide a discount for these sessions under the plan. We charge $86, the Medicare rebate is $58 (as at 1 July 2023), so you will incur a small out of pocket fee of $28 for each appointment, which is 30 minutes in duration. For Winnie, we do not have this discount arrangement and you will have an out of pocket fee which is equal to our usual fee minus the Medicare rebate. For example, Winnie's initial appointment is $158, if Medicare rebate is $58, you will have an out of pocket cost of $100.
Regardless of which physiotherapist you see, please keep in mind there are no further Medicare rebates or private health insurance claims available on your out of pocket cost.
We accept all major credit cards, excluding American Express.
