You are welcome to attend EDV Dietetics for as long as you need.

However, if you are eligible to claim through a Medicare rebate you will need to discuss your rebates with your Doctor.

If you have private health insurance, you may be eligible for additional rebates dependant on your provider.

How will it help me?

Dietitians understand how your body works and how nutrition plays an important part in wellbeing and recovery from an eating disorder.

They will work collaboratively with you to develop knowledge, strategies and skills around food, eating and nutrition.

What are the fees?

We understand that it can be difficult to afford ongoing therapy, and our fees are lower than those recommended by the Dietitians Association Australia (DAA).

55-minute session - $125

Valid Health Care Card holders receive a $20 discount.

All fees are payable at the time of appointment. We accept cash, EFTPOS, Visa and Mastercard. If you are claiming a rebate you will need to visit a Medicare office or upload your receipt to the Medicare app after your session.

Will my private health fund cover any of the cost?

That depends on your level of cover. Please consult your individual fund for further information.
