Exercise Physiology FAQs

1. What should I wear?

Your practitioner will need to have access to the area of pain. Therefore, it is best if you can wear shorts (and a sports bra in the case of women). We have gowns and shorts on site should you not have appropriate attire. You will not need to disrobe to your underwear.

2. Does Movehappy Healthcare treat insurance patients?

Movehappy Healthcare therapists treat insurance patients. If you have an insurance claim, it is best to have a GP or specialist referral. It is also important that you have contacted your insurer to ensure that your claim HAS been accepted (verbal confirmation is insufficient).
We require payment at the time of service as Movehappy Healthcare does not directly invoice insurance companies for your treatment. Third-party patients will need to forward their paid invoice to their insurer for a rebate. We also charge our listed fees for all insurance patients, so it is important that you understand what costs your insurer will cover, as you might be left with a gap.

3. Does Movehappy Healthcare have HICAPS?

Movehappy Healthcare has HICAPs on site which means that if you have health insurance you can process your claim on the spot, meaning that you only have to pay the gap.

4.What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)?

AEP’s are university qualified allied health professionals who specialize in the delivery of exercise and lifestyle programs for people at high-risk of developing, or with existing chronic and complex medical conditions and injuries.

5. When should I see an Exercise Physiologist?

You might see an AEP to help you:

  • Overcome persisting pain caused by injury or overuse
  • Improve your heart health
  • Rehabilitate following a cardiac event
  • Control your diabetes
  • Diabetes & pre-diabetes
  • Recovery following cancer treatment
  • Depression and mental health conditions
  • Improve your general health and wellbeing

6. How much does it cost?

  • Initial: $110
  • Standard: $100

Accredited Exercise Physiologists are allied health professionals, therefore they have a Medicare Provider Number. Movehappy Healthcare has the facility HiCaps which means if you have Private Health the claim can be done directly from our premises.
