Our Chiropractor has seen hundreds of patients with their Chronic Disease Management plans. We communicate with patient’s medical doctors, writing a personalised letter to the General Practitioners (GP), explaining our findings and any therapy and/or recommendations. By doing this, this allows medical doctors to have a better understanding of the patient’s musculo-skeletal condition and any chiropractic suggestions. We find by working together with our patient’s GP’s better clinical outcomes are often reached and great patient satisfaction is achieved.
How does the payment work with a Chronic Disease Management plan?
After your GP has granted an Enhanced Primary Care/CDM it can be faxed directly through to your chiropractor. Alternatively, you can receive the documents from your GP and bring them to your chiropractor. This will all be processed on site immediately for you.
