Fees & Rebates

Fees

The cost of an initial assessment varies, based on the age of the child and the nature of the problem that they are presenting with.  Subsequent therapy rates also vary, with 30 minute, 45 minute and 1 hour appointments available.  I am happy to take phone enquiries and give you specific information regarding fees on request.

Rebates

Private Health Insurance
Private Speech Pathology sessions may be rebated through private ancillary health insurance.  Check with your private health insurer to find out if your policy includes cover for Speech Pathology services.

Medicare Rebates
I am a registered as an HIC Medicare Provider and am happy to be involved with a GP Management Plan (GPMP), if initiated by your GP.  This would allow you to claim a partial rebate for 5 sessions per calendar year through Medicare under the Chronic Disease Management Programme.  To be eligible, your child must have a chronic condition or complex care needs as determined by your GP.  These 5 sessions can be used to access speech therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and / or audiology services.
