What Is A Care Plan?


April 18, 2019 Services

Health Hub Doctors Morayfield offers patients Care Plans to manage a chronic condition over the course of 12 months.

 

What is a care plan?

A care plan is a management plan of a chronic condition which the doctor manages over a 12 month period. During this 12 month period, the doctor will set particular goals and targets that they want the patient to achieve which is then communicated with the patient so they are fully aware of how they will achieve these goals.

What is included in a care plan?

A care plan lasts for 12 months. During this period, patients receive 5 free visits to allied health from January and December.

If your care plan begins in June for example, patients will receive 5 free allied health visits from June-December AND another 5 free visits from January-June.

Who is eligible for a care plan?

To be eligible for a care plan, a patient must have a chronic condition that has lasted longer than 6 months or that the GP thinks will last longer than 6 months.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic Pain (eg. back pain)
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Behavioural Problems (eg. developmental delays)
What is the cost of a care plan?

Care plans are completely bulk-billed if you hold a current Medicare card.

Most allied health services are bulk-billed.

How do you organise a care plan?

To organise a care plan, please come in and speak to your regular GP to discuss the suitability of a care plan. The type of allied health that a patient will see is completely under the GP's discretion.

If you are suitable for a care plan, your GP will refer you to reception to make an appointment with a care plan nurse.

Dr David Shahar is our chiropractor here at Health Hub Doctors Morayfield who is committed to helping patients with their musculoskeletal related complaints. 

Dr David discusses poor posture and how this simple problem deserves a simple solution.

Poor posture is an epidemic, that is adversely affecting most of us, and it is most likely affecting you too. Its toll includes joint and muscle ache, fatigue, inflammation and early degeneration, as well as making you look shorter, heavier and insecure. By improving posture, we can improve body function, as well as safeguard against joint and nerve damage associated with poor posture techniques. A simple problem deserves a simple solution. Along with spinal manipulative techniques, Dr David actively engages his patients by educating and equipping them with the knowledge and tools they need to improve their posture and relieve related symptoms.

If you suffer from an acute or chronic headache, neck or back pain, you are not alone as the spread of musculoskeletal disorders has reached epidemic proportions. Although related symptoms (pain, weakness, loss of sensation etc.) may appear suddenly, largely, muscle, bone and joint degeneration develop silently over time.

Dr David Shahar is a researcher and a chiropractic clinician with over 20-years experience. He has authored and published numerous scientific papers in the medical literature, in the area of bone and joint decay and helped countless patient resolve or manage their musculoskeletal related complaints. Treatment procedures employ hands-on methods and effective patient home-care education.
