Free Consultation & Exam

We offer the opportunity for potential new patients to have a brief consultation & examination with one of our chiropractors at no charge. This may be of advantage to people who are unsure whether treatment at our clinic is appropriate for them. Note that no treatment is included in this offer.

Chiro / Massage Combo Discount

If you have a massage & chiro appointment on the same day then you’ll receive a $5 discount on your chiro fee.

Massage gift vouchers

Have you got a person hard to buy for? Or are you just wanting to treat someone special? We have remedial massage gift vouchers available.

Private Health Funds:

Full rebates apply for treatment provided by Southside Healthcare’s chiropractors and massage therapists from private health funds with extras cover. We have HICAPS facilities so that in the majority of cases patients are able to claim their rebate on the spot, and will only have to pay the gap. The chiropractors at Southside Healthcare are part of Bupa’s Members’ First Network, meaning that BUPA members will receive an increased rebate.  To find how much rebate you will receive, please check with your insurance company.

  

Medicare Bulk Billing:

At Southside Health Care, our chiropractors are fully registered with Medicare and we are happy to bulk bill patients who have a Medicare EPC health plan which has chiropractic referral. Under the Medicare system, allied health providers (including chiropractors) are only able to bill to Medicare if the patient has been referred by their GP under a Medicare EPC health plan (sometimes also called a CDM plan).  Such a referral will cover up to five appointments per year. To be eligible for an EPC referral, you need to have a chronic health condition. For more information contact us or see the Medicare website.

Department of Veterans’ Affairs:

Southside Health Care chiropractors are registered with DVA, & we are happy to welcome all Gold Card holders, and appropriate White Card holders with all fees billed to DVA.  You will need a referral from your GP.

X-rays:

Southside Health Care chiropractors do not necessarily require X-rays to commence treatment.  Whether X-rays are required is a clinical decision based on the presentation of the individual patient.  In practice, the majority of cases don’t require X-rays.  If you have previous relevant X-rays, please bring them to your initial appointment.  If we do require new X-rays, we refer out to private radiologists, usually Dr Jones & Partners at Noarlunga Hospital or Morphett Vale who, in most cases, will bulk bill to Medicare.
