To see a Speech Pathologist at Simply Speech pathology, you do not need a referral from a doctor. We do have a number of funding options available:
We are able to process Medicare funding for assessment and therapy sessions.
Your child may be eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDM) which allows for 5 rebated Speech Pathology sessions per calendar year through Medicare. Your child will be entitled to a Medicare rebate of $52.95.
Your General Practitioner will be able to provide you with this care plan if your child is deemed to have a chronic condition that requires ongoing care, that involves two or more health professionals.
PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE
All of our clinicians at Simply Speech Pathology are registered Medicare providers, and therefore approved with all Private Health Funds across Australia. The amount your child is covered for is determined by your Private Health Fund and your level of cover. For more information on what your insurer will cover, please contact them.
NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME (NDIS)
We are a registered NDIS provider. If you are an NDIS participant looking for speech pathology services, please contact us today and we will gladly discuss services we can provide you with.
We do not have a waitlist, and will be happy to start services as soon as possible.
