Bone Density Screening Clinic

 

Bone density screening clinics are held at the practice with the support of Osteoporosis Solutions. A great service for our patients and the Kelmscott community.

They are here :

On the 21st and 26th of September and our last clinic for the year is on the 5th of December

 

Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones become brittle and fragile, leading to a greater risk of fractures (breaks). It is often called the silent disease, as there are no symptoms. Often a broken bone is the first indication of osteoporosis. Loss of height and spinal deformities can be caused by collapsed or crushed vertebrae.

A bone density test, which measures the amount of bone mineral (calcium) in the skeleton, is the best way to detect osteoporosis.

Our team of specialised Rheumatologists, qualified technical and support staff, are committed to providing a high level of clinical service and diagnostic accuracy to our referring doctors and patients.

 

 

 

 

 

Coming Up

MyMedicare /Registration for patients starting on the 1st of October 2023

WHAT IS NEW?

MyMedicare

The Australian Government is introducing a new voluntary patient registration model called MyMedicare to drive improvements in primary health care for all Australians and deliver new funding packages to primary care providers.


MyMedicare will strengthen the relationship between patients and their primary care teams by allowing patients to register with their regular general practice and select their preferred GP and providers within the practice.

Registration in MyMedicare is voluntary for patients, practices and providers.
Practices can now begin the MyMedicare registration process and link their providers to their practice before patient registration becomes available from 1 October 2023.

 

For more information visit:

health.gov.au/MyMedicare

Why it is important?

 

 

MyMedicare patients will have access to:

 

  • Greater continuity of care with their registered practice, improving health outcomes

  • Longer MBS-funded telephone calls (Levels C and D) with their usual general practice

  • Triple bulk billing incentive for longer MBS telehealth consultations (Levels C, D and E) for children under 16, pensioners, and concession card holders

  • If they live in a residential aged care home, more regular visits from their GP and better care planning, from August 2024

  • If they visit hospital frequently, connections to more appropriate care in general practice, from the 2024-25 financial year.

Telehealth

Practices that provide services to patients who would benefit from the new MyMedicare-linked MBS longer telehealth services or provide care to people in residential aged care are encouraged to register those patients in MyMedicare as priority cohorts over the next 3 months.

Patients

·         Registration

To register in MyMedicare, patients must have either:

  • A Medicare card

  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Veteran Card.

Most patients will need to have 2 face-to-face visits recorded with the same practice in the previous 24 months to be eligible to register with that practice.

For patients registered with a practice in a remote location (in Modified Monash Model (MMM) 6 and 7 locations), this requirement is reduced to one face-to-face visit recorded at the same practice in the previous 24 months.

Parents/guardians and children can be registered at the same practice if one of them is eligible and registered at the practice.

 

Patients can only be registered with one practice at a time.

 

Eligible visits can be billed through:

  • Medicare

  • DVA

  • a combination of both.

Exemptions from all eligibility requirements will apply to people who are facing hardship including people experiencing domestic and family violence and/or homelessness. A trusted practice or GP will be able to help with direct registration in MyMedicare.
