Dietitian consultations can be claimable on health insurance or through Medicare. Most private health insurance companies reimburse a proportion of the consultation fee under Extras cover. However you will need to check with your insurer for confirmation of your level of cover. Rebates are available through Medicare only via the Enhanced Primary Care scheme, which requires a referral from your GP. Please check with your GP to see if you are eligible.
