Medicare:

PromOTe Occupational Therapy have access to 3 types of funding under Medicare:

1) Chronic Disease Management Plan (Formerly known as Enhanced Primary Care Plan):

This plan gives you 5 subsidised sessions for allied health, including OT.  This plan can be renewed each calender year. If your child has a chronic medical condition and this condition is being managed by your GP, your child might be eligible for the EPC plan. This plan is established by your GP and the allied health professional is invited to participate under this plan. Sessions are paid as usual but you take your receipt to Medicare for the rebate.

 

2) Autism and Better Start Initiatives:

Medicare rebates can be accessed by children under 15 years with a diagnosis of ASD, Downs Syndrome, CP, Hearing and Vision impairments and Fragile X Syndrome as long as they receive the diagnosis prior to 13 years of age. Occupational Therapists can provide up to 4 assessment services per child per life time and up to 20 intervention services per child per life time.  Please be aware that these services CANNOT be renewed annually and can be used for other allied health services.

” Please be aware that with all private health care funds and Medicare rebates, there is always an out of pocket cost depending on your level of coverage.”
