There are various funding options that may be available for therapy depending on your child's eligibility. These include the following:
Private health insurance
Contact your private health insurer to see if you are eligible for any rebates as each health provider has slightly different policies.
Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan
This is a Medicare funded scheme that provides rebates for five allied health sessions each calendar year. Speak to your GP to see if you child may be eligible.
This is a federal government initiative for children with a disability. This practice is able to see families who are self-managing their funds only, as the practice is not currently registered with NDIS.
If your child is of Indigenous descent, they may be eligible for Medicare rebates for some therapy sessions. Speak to your GP or the clinic to find out more information.
