Chronic Disease and Asthma

Under Medicare, additional funds are available to anyone with a significant chronic disease, to assist them in accessing allied health practitioners, such as dieticians, podiatrists and physiotherapists. “Significant Chronic Disease” would include, among others, individuals with diabetes, heart disease, and severe respiratory disease. Please talk to your doctor if you fall in this category.

With respect to asthma, we urge everyone to have a current asthma action plan as these have been shown to reduce hospital admissions. If you don’t have one, ask your doctor next time you are in, and please bring all your puffers etc with you, for clarification.
