Methods of Payment

Insurance Rebate

We accept all health funds and have preferred provider status with Medibank Private. There is the convenience of on the spot claiming with HICAPS after your treatment. The amount claimable is dependent on your level of coverage. We can’t see this before the claim is processed (privacy). If you want to know what you will get back, please contact your fund. You must have your card or have it loaded on your phone in oder to claim. 

Health fund claims thru HICAPS must be done on day of treatment. If that is not possible, you well need to pay the full amount and claim with your fund directly.

Please note: Health funds do not cover cosmetic/beauty enhancement acupuncture

We are registered for WorkCover claims and will need a referral from the GP and approval from Workcover for us to claim on your behalf. Your first visit for Workcover doesn’t need a referral to receive treatment.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Self Management: With this plan, you manage your own NDIS funding. You have flexibility of choice of therapy and of individual healthcare provider. Payment is made direct to Deare Acupuncture Clinic at the time of treatment. You are personally reimbursed by NDIS, in accordance with their allocated budget allowance. Plan Management: The payment process differs slightly with this plan. Your invoice is forwarded to your plan manager who, in turn reimburses Deare Acupuncture Clinic for your treatment.

Aged/ Home Care Package (HCP) Program

You will need to be assessed. The person who meets the age criteria should contact My Aged Care to ascertain if their care needs make them eligible for a HCP. If eligible, the person will then be referred for a face to face assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT. ACAT will identify the appropriate HCP level to meet the person's needs). It is through this HCP that the person can choose acupuncture as a necessary part of their package.

Payment Support

Transparency Of Treatment

New clients at the time point of the 3rd to the 6th treatment and it is clear progress is not at a rate acceptable to you, we will consult with you and if required, refer you. As well if we, as the practitioner, are not happy with the progress, we will consult with you and if required, refer you.


If you have any concerns or questions please ask, we are here to help and ensure your health journey is done with best care possible, within our scope of practice. As part of this process all continuing clients will be asked about your progress at every appointment for as long as you stay with us.


Acupuncture is not a miracle treatment that will fix you in 1 to 2 sessions. If that is what you are expecting or looking for then we aren’t the practitioners for you.
