Medicare

Your GP may provide you with a Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly Enhanced Primary Care Plan). This entitles you to a rebate of $52.95 from Medicare for 5 sessions per calendar year. Individuals of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent are eligible for an additional 5 sessions per calendar year. See humanservices.gov.au for more information. We have Medicare Easyclaim in our office so you can claim the rebate on the spot.

Your health fund may provide a rebate for Speech Pathology services. We recommend you speak to your health fund about your individual cover. We have HICAPS in our office so you can claim on the spot and just pay the gap.
