Chronic conditions impose a huge financial burden and workload on public health system. As a result, chronic disease management has become an important part of modern general practice. Medicare Australia has been effectively running a successful community-based service program through a collaboration between general practitioners and allied health providers called Chronic Disease Services formerly known as Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) which entitles eligible patients suffering from different chronic conditions to access 5 sessions with community-based allied health providers through their GPs by having GP Management Plans (GPMP) and Team Care Arrangements (TCA).

By definition, a chronic condition is one which has been or expected to continue for at least six months. Classic examples include Asthma, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Diabetes, Osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Degenerative lumbar, knees, shoulders diseases, Ischaemic Heart Disease and other chronic diseases of the Musculoskeletal, Gastrointestinal, Neurological condition.
