Equipment Program

Assessment and Ordering

Assessment and Ordering

Medical grade footwear and orthotics must be assessed by a suitably qualified allied health professional who will submit all paperwork to the Equipment Program.

People receiving Disability Support for Older Australians (DSOA) services, may be eligible to access assessment services through their DSOA provider.

An assessment can be arranged (which the individual may need to pay for) through:

  • a Medicare Chronic Disease Management Plan through their GP
  • a private therapist (heath insurance or self-funded)
  • the Commonwealth My Aged Care Programme (people aged 65 years and over only) or
  • SA Health or Country Connect.
