Funding Options

We are able to provide services through:

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS): If you have a plan that includes services deliverable by our team, we are able to directly invoice the NDIA for payment of fees where applicable.

More information: www.ndis.gov.au

 

Medicare:

Chronic Disease Management Plan

If your GP has diagnosed your child with a chronic medical condition (one which has been, or is likely to be, present for at least 6 months), then your child may be eligible to be placed on a Chronic Disease Management Plan.  Under these plans, a total of five Allied Health sessions annually (including both Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology) are accessible to help with the management of the condition for a full or partial medicare rebate. 

Please discuss this initiative with your GP.

Department of Social Services (DSS):

We are a member of the Early Intervention Service Provider Panel for provision of services for both Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) and Better Start for Children with a Disability (Better Start) programmes.  Funding is available up to $6,000 per year, with a maximum of $12,000, prior to the child turning 7 years of age. We can directly invoice to the DSS.

Medicare rebates are available for those children under 15 years of age, within the same diagnostic groups as listed above, providing that they received their diagnosis prior to turning 13. These services can be used to assist in diagnosis (up to four sessions) and/or treatment (up to twenty sessions total). 

Please discuss this initiative with your paediatrician or psychiatrist.
