I am a certified practising speech pathologist with a Medicare provider number.
GP referral – If you GP refers you under a chronic disease management plan or an enhanced primary health care plan, you will receive a medicare benefit of approximately $53. You pay for the session and the medicare benefit is processed the same day, and is usually back in your account overnight.
NDIS – I am able to see both self managed and plan managed clients. Plan managed clients just need to pay and then claim back from the plan managers.
Private health – Yes Speech pathology is eligible for rebates from some private health funds. Please let me know if you intend to claim with private health and I will make sure your receipt has the correct details for your claim to be processed.
