Question:

Why can I get a Medicare rebate for the consultation, but not for my treatment?

Answer:

Medically recognised treatments are rebated partially by Medicare. Consultations for all treatments are partially rebated by Medicare as the doctor has to discuss any medical related issues with you that may affect your treatment.
