FUNDING

There are several funding options which may assist with the cost of accessing services.  These include:

Private Health
Invoices for Active Speech Pathology services may be claimed for rebate from your private health fund. Contact your fund to see if your level of cover entitles you to a rebate for speech pathology services.

Medicare Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plans 
Each one of our team members has a medicare provider number which means we can provide services under Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Medicare items on the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS). Eligibility for this plan is determined by GPs, based on your child’s level of need. In these cases, a partial refund for up to five services per calendar year is available.

The refund does not cover the full cost of sessions, and sessions must be paid in full prior to accessing refunds. We do not bulk bill.  For more information contact your GP, or visit Speech Pathology Australia or The Department of Health.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
Active Speech Pathology is not a registered provider under the NDIS which means we are unable to provide services to those clients who are agency managed. We can accept families who are self or plan managed. Please bring along your child’s NDIS reference number, plan dates and plan goals to your initial session to ensure we provide supports that meet the NDIS’ requirements.
