Do your patients need a referral to see a dietitian?
Not all Dietitians require a referral. We do appreciate them as having some background medical/health related information on our patients/clients enables us to provide the best possible advice.
Many Dietitians welcome taking part in Medicare Team Care Arrangements for clients with chronic medical conditions and they also take DVA referrals and participate in the NDIS.
Don’t forget DVA Gold Card Members are eligible for free Dietetic Services and patients with private health cover for dietetics can receive a rebate.
