Communicate Speech Pathology accepts and is a registered provider of a range of funding options.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
Communicate Speech Pathology is a registered provider with the National Disability Insurance Scheme. We provide mobile speech pathology services to eligible NDIS participants of all ages across Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra and Melbourne.
Funding for Communicate Speech Pathology services generally falls under ‘Improved Daily Living’. Therapists are able to provide standardised assessments, reports and progress reports to submit to the NDIS when a clients funding is being reviewed.
Private Health Cover
Speech Pathology Assessment and Therapy sessions can be claimed through Private Health Cover under extras cover. The rebate amount per session and the number of sessions covered is dependent on the individual’s level of cover. The rebate for assessments is usually higher than that for therapy sessions. A typical rebate would be somewhere between $30-$80 per therapy session for 10-16 sessions per calendar year.
Before commencing therapy, please check with your health fund to ensure that Speech Pathology is included in your cover and the amount you are eligible to claim for each individual assessment and therapy session.
