Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) is the only credential recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, the Department of Veterans Affairs and most private health funds as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetics services in Australia.

This means as an individual client of Shivaun’s, you may be eligible for rebates from your private health insurer, Medicare or the Department of Veteran Affairs.


Private Health Fund Rebates

Generous private health fund rebates are available from most major health funds, depending on your level of extras cover. Ask your private health care fund about Dietetic consultations.
