Chronic Disease Management
A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke. The Chronic Disease Management Plan is designed for individuals who require a structured approach to dealing with their respective condition.
There are 2 types of plans your General Practitioner may prepare for you – a GP Management Plan (GPMP) and a Team Care Arrangement (TCA). If you have both a GPMP and TCAs prepared for you by your GP, you may be eligible for Medicare rebates for specific individual allied health services that your GP has identified as part of your care.
As Allied Health practitioners, the Exercise Physiology staff of Envy Sports Science Clinic is well equipped to be able to deliver interventions associated with Chronic Disease Management, for example assisting individuals with Type 2 Diabetes. Check in with your GP to see if you qualify for Allied Health services, and contact Envy Sports Science at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an initial consultation.
