We are aware that private speech pathology can be costly for families. It is important to be aware of some funding options that may be available for your child.

If your child is not eligible for the below funding options, or if you are on a waiting list to receive funding, then you may be eligible for our discounted rates. Please enquire.

Possible funding options include:

National Disability Insurance Scheme

This is now being rolled out in South Australia. Liberty Speech Pathology is a registered service provider for the NDIS. Children (aged 0-14) may be eligible for this support if they:

  • have a disability that is likely to be permanent or
  • have a developmental delay and
  • there is evidence that shows getting early supports will reduce how much help you or your child need to do things in the future

(Taken from NDIS Publication: One Big Difference to Lots of Lives: An Introduction to Disability Care Australia http://www.ndis.gov.au/document/419 ).

You can check your child’s eligibility here: http://www.ndis.gov.au/people-disability/access-requirements
More information is available at: http://www.ndis.gov.au/

Private Health Cover

If you have private health cover, please contact your provider to see how much they cover. Liberty Speech Pathology has a HICAPS terminal at our Modbury clinic, so you may claim your benefit on the spot with participating health funds.

Medicare Enhanced Primary Care Plan

Your child may be eligible for up to 5 rebated sessions per calendar year through Medicare. Note: Under this funding, you may still be eligible for our discounted rates. You will need to obtain this from your GP. Your child may be eligible if they have a significant communication impairment that is considered complex and chronic. For more information from Medicare:

Centrelink Carer’s Allowance

You may be eligible to receive this payment if your child’s communication disability is significant. This is a fortnightly payment that you can use to supplement costs to meet your child’s needs, such as speech therapy. More information about the Centrelink Care Allowance is available from: http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/enablers/centrelink/carer-allowance/claiming
