Range Pilates Studio is structured around Exercise Physiology and evidence-based theories to support the revolving field of health, fitness and physical training.
An Exercise Physiologist specialises in the prescription of exercises and movement for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. Working in collaboration with a General Practitioner and other allied health practitioners, we will develop an exercise program, using Pilates and other strength/ cardiovascular apparatus to support your current medical status, musculoskeletal condition and fitness to ensure that the exercise program is both safe and effective in achieving your desired health goals.
The (1:1) Initial Assessment will consist of a 60 minute pre-screen which is important for your safety and to provide the following information:
Relevant medical history
Basic parameter testing (blood pressure, height/ weight, body measurements)
Simple functional tests to measure strength, balance, agility and mobility
The functional measures are re-taken every 6 to 12 months (or more if you like!) in order to align with heath compliance AND provide you with data on your progress.
* All new clients are required to attend one Initial Consultation or Introduction Class
* Subject to healthcare/private health rebate
* 60 minutes per session
Funding and Rebates
Our studio offers eligible clients access to either Medicare, DVA or private health insurance rebates under our Exercise Physiology Services. The rebates will depend on the session, your condition and your level of healthcare/ private health insurance.
We recommend you talk with your GP or private health insurer about any rebates available to you before your first appointment with us.
Please note that for each appointment with us you can only claim either a Medicare rebate, DVA or a private health insurance rebate, not a combination.
Medicare/ DVA Rebates
You may be able to claim Medicare rebates for our Exercise Physiology Services through a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan. Discuss and organise a CDM plan with your GP. A CDM is a Medicare initiative for chronic conditions that last for at least 6 months. A CDM allows you to access 5 sessions per calendar year with allied health practitioners, including exercise physiologists, dietitians and physiotherapists. The current rebate is $53.80 per individual session, please be aware there is a gap charge of $36.20 payable on the day of your Initial Consultation.
Eligible DVA clients can be referred to Range Pilates Studio from thier GP for Exercise Physiology treatment on a valid D904 referral form. Please contact us if you require further information or to schedule an appointment.
Private Health Insurance
From 1 April 2019, Private Health Rebates no longer apply for Pilates Classes, however our clients can continue to receive rebates for the Exercise Physiology Services including the Initial Consultation and Private Classes.
The exact amount of Private Health rebate will be dependent on your level of cover and insurer. Please contact them for further information regarding this matter.
Please note referral paperwork is required for Medicare and DVA before or at your first appointment. Full fees will apply if no referral is received. Furthermore, we do not have a HICAPS machine, therefore you will be required to access your rebate through your provider.
