All Australian children should be able to access some form of funding to assist with their fees. Every child’s circumstances are unique, and where you live may affect the fund you can access (for example, through the NDIS). Your GP may be able to provide a recommendation.
In any case, please contact Hear and Say to discuss your options.
You may be eligible for:
- Medicare Items for Betterstart Initiative for assessment (up to four sessions) and treatment (up to 20 sessions)
- Medicare Chronic Disease Management Plan for treatment (up to five sessions in a 12 month period)
- Private Health
All our Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists are Medicare registered. Families may be asked to pay the full invoice amount upfront and be responsible for claiming additional rebates independently of Hear and Say.
