Find My Appointment | My Appointments
Welcome to the Find My Appointment online directory (FMA) and My Appointments platform (MA), owned and operated by FMA Operations Pty Ltd (ABN 43 643 625 689) (we, us or our).
FMA is an online directory that includes information about natural health practitioners/ providers, including sole practitioners and those within multi-practitioner (and multidisciplinary) clinics/practices, which visitors to the website can use to search for and contact practitioners.
MA is an online platform (including an associated mobile application (App)) that includes functionalities that practitioners can use to manage their natural health practices, take bookings for appointments, and interact with their patients (including engaging in virtual telehealth consultations).
You are a health practitioner/provider wishing to list your services on an online directory and/or requiring a practice management and appointment booking platform for your natural health practice (Practice) (which may be a sole practice or may include other practitioners/providers). You have decided to adopt MA for and/or on behalf of your Practice, for the purposes of practice management and appointment booking in your Practice.
We reserve the right to accept or reject any account registration in our absolute discretion.
You must not access or use FMA, MA or the Services for any other purposes. You must ensure that no person other than you and any approved Sub-User accesses or uses FMA, MA or the Services through your Practice’s Main Account or Sub-Accounts.
To nominate another person for access to and use of FMA and MA as a Sub-User associated with your Main Account, they must be, and you represent and warrant that they are: 18 years of age or older; an employee or contractor (as an administrative staff member, practitioner colleague or otherwise), or a director, officer, principal or (whole or part) owner, of your Practice; and authorised by you to use FMA and MA as a Sub-User. Further, to nominate another person to hold a Sub-Account as a Practitioner Sub-User (Practitioner Sub-Account), they must be, and you represent and warrant that they are, a natural health practitioner with a current practicing registration with AHPRA or a fully paid up membership of at least one of the accredited associations listed on our website.
We reserve the right to accept or reject any Sub-Account registration in our absolute discretion.
You must provide a valid mobile phone number for yourself at the time of registration, to which we will send an SMS to verify that you are the owner or operator of that phone number. Where you initiate registration of a Sub-Account, you must also provide a valid mobile phone number for the nominated Sub-User, to which we will send an SMS to verify that they are the owner or operator of that phone number. In either case, we may cancel or reject registration of an account for FMA and MA if the provided phone number is not verified as belonging to the person for whom the account is being registered.
Where you initiate registration of a Sub-Account, you confirm and agree that you are authorised by the nominated Sub-User to initiate registration of the Sub-Account in their name and to provide us with the relevant information about them for account creation purposes, including their name, email address and mobile phone number.
You must ensure that the information you provide to us about you, your Practice or any nominated Sub-User is true, accurate, complete and up to date at the time you provide it (whether at the time of initial account registration or later). If the information you provided about you, your Practice or any nominated Sub-User is incorrect or subsequently changes, you must promptly update your MA account with the correct and current information. You must also ensure that any information provided to us by nominated Sub-Users is true, accurate, complete and up to date, and that Sub-Users promptly update their Sub-Account details if the information they provided about themselves changes or is discovered to be incorrect.
in each case by completing the pro-forma template we provide, supplying the minimum information we request.
You must notify us immediately if you become aware or suspect that another party has accessed your account or login credentials or has conducted unauthorised activities on your account.
You agree that you and any Practitioner Sub-Users have a direct relationship with your/their Patients and our role is limited to the provision of MA as a platform through which you, your Sub-Users and the Patient can interact. Any information, advice, care or treatment provided by you or any Sub-User, or exchanged between a Patient and you or any Sub-User, whether through MA or otherwise, including but not limited to information, advice, care or treatment provided in the course of a Telehealth Consultation, is provided under and pursuant to your / the Practitioner Sub-user’s / your Practice’s (as applicable) professional/practitioner relationship and/or agreement with the Patient and we are not responsible or liable in any way for such information, advice, care or treatment.
A calendar for booking natural health appointments (Appointment Calendar) is allocated to the Main User and a separate Appointment Calendar will be allocated to each approved Practitioner Sub-User in the Practice. You and each Sub-User will generally have access to the Appointment Calendars of all of the practitioners in your Practice who have MA accounts, for administration purposes, although this can be modified at your discretion in accordance with your Practice’s preferences.
At your option, we will publish the available appointments in your Appointment Calendar on FMA to display appointment availability and on MA for Patient bookings, and we will do the same for each Practitioner Sub-User (at their option). The display order of the practitioner directory list on FMA will be at our sole discretion.
You must actively ensure that your Appointment Calendar is accurate and up to date and that each Practitioner Sub-User actively keeps their Appointment Calendar accurate and up to date.
You must not, and you must ensure any Sub-Users do not, misuse your Appointment Calendar or the Appointment Calendar of any Sub-User to whose calendar you or they have access. In particular, you must not use an Appointment Calendar of a given practitioner for another practitioner’s bookings or for booking patients of another natural health practice, you must not allow your Appointment Calendar to be used for another practitioner’s (or another practice’s) bookings, you must ensure any Appointment Calendar you manage (including your own) does not list appointment times that are not available, and you must ensure any Sub-Users observe the same obligations.
If a visitor contacts you by telephone or email to enquire about your or the Practice’s services and/or requests an appointment, you or another Sub-User must confirm appointment availability verbally and (with the visitor’s permission) send an MA account activation and registration link to the visitor by email or SMS.
An appointment made by or for a Patient in an Appointment Calendar is not a representation or warranty by us that the Patient will attend or pay for the appointment, and any disputes between the Practice and a visitor or Patient regarding appointment bookings (e.g. ‘no shows’) are a matter solely between the Practice and the Patient.
MA includes functionality that allows you and any Practitioner Sub-Users to conduct a virtual online telehealth consultation with a Patient as a phone call or a video call through MA (Telehealth Consultation). You may authorise one or more Sub-Users to provide administrative assistance in scheduling, setting up and managing a Telehealth Consultation on your behalf or on behalf of Practitioner Sub-Users. The Telehealth Consultation functionality/service is provided by a third-party telehealth service provider.
You understand and agree the following in relation to any Telehealth Consultations you conduct:
MA includes functionality that allows you and any Practitioner Sub-Users to submit claims electronically to Medicare, the Department of Veteran Affairs, National Disability Insurance Scheme, Insurance and Care NSW (iCare) and private health insurers using the Medipass service.
The Medipass service is owned and operated by a third party. To access the Medipass service you must register for a Medipass account directly with Medipass (as must any Sub-User wishing to use the Medipass service). Your use of the Medipass service is your decision and subject to Medipass’ applicable terms and conditions as updated from time to time, which can be obtained directly from Medipass.

These services are provided by our third party payment processing service provider (Payment Processor) and any procurement of Payment Processing Services by you will be subject to a separate account agreement between you and the Payment Processor and their terms of service.
MA includes functionality that allows the Practice to send SMS reminders and notifications to its patients (SMS Services) through an authorised SMS service provider (SMS Provider).
You agree that you are solely responsible for the content of all SMS messages (whether sent on your own behalf or on behalf of another).

You must bear all costs arising out of any complaints made in connection with the messages (including complaints made by any Government agency).
MA includes functionality that allows a Main User or Practitioner Sub-User to recommend one or more natural health products (Products) to Patients on an individual Patient basis, to provide information about those Products to the Patient, and to make those Products available for the Patient to order and pay for through MA (on a one-off basis or as available repeat prescriptions).
The provision of information about, and recommendation, prescription, offer and sale of Products through MA is solely between the relevant practitioner (i.e. you or the Practitioner Sub-User) and the Patient, and we simply provide a platform to facilitate that interaction and transaction.
You acknowledge and agree that we do not endorse any of the Products or provide any warranties or guarantees in relation to them (including as to their legality, availability, quality, safety, efficacy, acceptability, fitness for purpose or suitability for your Patients) or in relation to any information that is provided through MA in relation to them (including as to the accuracy, reliability, currency or completeness of that information). The decision to recommend or prescribe the Products to Patients, to provide information about them and to supply them to Patients is solely your or the relevant Practitioner Sub-User’s decision.
The legal relationship of buyer and seller of the Products is between the relevant practitioner (i.e. you or the Practitioner Sub-User) or your Practice and the Patient. In particular:
We do not accept any responsibility or liability in relation to the Products, or the Patient’s or any other person’s use of them, or any information or advice provided in relation to them through MA. It is your responsibility to manage the quantity and frequency of your Patients’ orders through MA, including by the provision of appropriate repeats. You are solely responsible for the prices you charge your Patients for products (including any delivery charges), for ensuring you have stock available to meet your Patient’s orders, and for arranging the delivery of ordered Products to your Patients (including any and all delivery costs).
To facilitate your recommendation of a Product to your Patient and/or to make it available to them for purchase, MA includes functionality that may allow you, depending on the Product, to supply your Patients with certain information about a Product that is already stored in MA, such as packaging and labelling images, product description, directions for use and other label information. MA obtains such information from the third party manufacturers/suppliers of those Products and makes it available through MA for you to provide to your Patients on an ‘as is’ basis. We take no responsibility for and provide no warranties or guarantees in relation such third party information (including as to its accuracy, reliability, currency or completeness).

For the first 12 months after registration of a Main Account or a Practitioner Sub-Account, there is no fee to maintain a Practitioner Profile. After the first 12 months, in respect the Main Account and each Practitioner Sub-Account, to maintain a Practitioner Profile the periodic Practitioner Profile Fee must be paid. This fee may be either (at your or the Sub-User’s election, as applicable):
After 12 months of your MA account registration, you will receive an invoice for the amount of the Practitioner Profile Fee (with standard and premium options presented) to exercise the annual option to renew your MA account registration and to maintain your Practitioner Profile for another 12 months. Acceptance and payment of the invoice will, unless you elect to receive and pay periodic invoices manually, result in a default auto-renew facility being set up for you with the credit card details you provide to pay the invoice. Under the auto-renew facility, we will automatically debit your credit card in respect of each following periodic Practitioner Profile Fee as it falls due, unless you instruct us otherwise. We will notify you of the upcoming auto-renewal and automatic debit of your credit card 30 days before the payment is due to be made and again 7 days before payment is due. You may switch off the auto-renewal facility at any time by contacting us.
We receive a commission fee for your use of the Payment Processing Services, as a percentage of the fees you pay to the Payment Processor, which the Payment Processor pays to us.
You must comply, and must ensure that each Sub-User complies, with all privacy, health records and information laws and regulations applicable to your/their collection and use of personal information, sensitive information and health information insofar as it relates to your/their use of FMA and/or MA, including making all necessary disclosures and notifications to, and obtaining all necessary consents from, Visitors and Patients in respect of the collection, use and/or disclosure to you and/or us of their personal information.
It is your and each Sub-User’s responsibility to have appropriate back-up processes in place to protect against unexpected data corruption or loss. We recommend you regularly export Account Data from MA to your own system to protect against any data loss caused by MA hardware or system failure. If you delete Account Data, deliberately or accidentally, deletion is permanent and we are not able to retrieve it.
Subject to your instructions to the contrary, we will store Account Data in respect of the Main Account and each Sub-Account for as long as each such account is held. If you or a Sub-User close your MA account, or we terminate your use of an account, we will deactivate the account but hold the Account Data in respect of that account so that it can be reactivated and the Account Data accessed again, for a period of 12 months. After 12 months, we may at our discretion delete the relevant Account Data. It is your and your Sub-Users’ responsibility to ensure that you and they observe your/their legal and regulatory record keeping obligations, including by exporting Account Data where your/their MA account is to be closed.
We may use certain limited Account Data relating to Visitors (such as their name, email and mobile phone number) for appointment booking and MA account creation, to promote natural health services (which may be complementary or competitive to those offered by your Practice), to promote natural health and complementary medicine education material relevant to your Practice and for other promotional campaigns (subject to your/Sub-User’s opt-out within the period specified with campaign notification).
We may use certain limited Account Data relating to Patients (such as their name, email and mobile phone number), with the Patient’s, your or the treating Sub-User’s approval via an opt-in mechanism, for campaigns to encourage the use of MA, to provide promotional material or natural health and complementary medicine education material relevant to your Practice, and to promote natural health services (which may be complementary or competitive to those offered by your Practice).
You must not, and you must ensure that any Sub-Users do not, send any commercial electronic message to a Patient (by their MA account or otherwise) unless you, the Main User or another Sub-User have first ensured, prior to sending, that the Patient has opted in to receiving such commercial electronic messages. You agree to comply, and to ensure that any Sub-Users comply, with the requirements of the Spam Act 2003 (Cth) by identifying the entity authorising the commercial electronic message and providing a functional unsubscribe facility.
We will not provide any refund or credit in respect of fees paid for services (including the maintenance of Practitioner Profiles) before termination under this clause, or in respect of unused Purchase Credits you may hold.
and we reasonably believe that terminating your or a Sub-User’s access to and use of FMA, MA and/or the Services is necessary for security reasons or to preserve the proper continued operations of the Services.
We will not provide any refund or credit in respect of fees paid for services (including the maintenance of Practitioner Profiles) before termination under this clause, or in respect of unused Purchase Credits you may hold.
