Medicare rebates for Speech Pathology & Occupational Therapy services are available for patients under a GP Enhanced Primary Care Plan/Chronic Disease Management Plan. This plan needs to be in place prior to assessment for the Medicare rebate (for up to a total of 5 sessions in a calendar year) to be claimed. Please note the Medicare rebate is $53.80. As an example therefore, a 60 min initial consultation would require a gap payment of $140.19. Private Health Funds also provide some part-session rebates – please check with your health fund. Please note that you cannot claim both Medicare and private health benefits for the same consult.
