JL Speech Pathology offers a variety of funding options available, designed to help you provide speech pathology services for your child.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The Federal Government's National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding for children who require access to speech pathology services. If your child is eligible, this funding can cover both assessments, therapy sessions, and assistive technology (e.g. speech generating devices). The amount of funding depends on your child's individual needs and goals, determined during the NDIS planning process, and is reviewed yearly.
JL Speech Pathology supports both plan-managed and self-managed participants. Please enquire to find out more about how you can apply for this funding.
Please visit the NDIS website to determine whether your child is eligible for NDIS funding.
If you are referred by a GP under a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan, you or your child may be eligible for a Medicare rebate ($53.80 per session) for up to 5 allied health services per calendar year.
A CDM referral form is needed for your GP to complete.
Your GP will decide if you are eligible for these services and will refer you accordingly.
Private Health Insurance
Depending on your policy and extras cover, you may be eligible to claim Speech pathology services through your private health insurance.
You will see these item numbers if you have the appropriate cover:
320 is the item number for a Speech Pathology Assessment.
340 is the item number for a Speech Pathology therapy consultation.
Check with your health insurance to see if your specific level of cover entitles you to a rebate.
