Payment in full via card or direct deposit is required on the day of your assessment/therapy session. “On the spot” Private Health claims are available using the Relate clinic’s HICAPS machine. EFTPOS facilities are also available.
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) to be claimed. Please note the Medicare rebate is $52.95. As an example therefore, a 60 min initial consultation would require a gap payment of $131.55. 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.
*Initial consults are generally 60 mins for Speech/Language & OT, and 90 mins for feeding assessments. Please consult the “Services” website page.
