Your Funding Options

To help as much as we can, South West Kids Clinic has a range of payment methods available, depending on your circumstances and diagnosis. 

Private Health Insurance

South West Kids Clinic is a registered provider with most private health insurance funds.

If you are unsure if you are covered, please contact your insurance company for details. We have a Hicaps terminal at the clinic for easy on the spot claiming from your health fund so you only need to pay the gap.

Medicare

Chronic Disease Management – previously known as the Enhanced Primary Care Plan.

If your child has a chronic medical condition, you may be able to get Medicare benefits to cover allied health services that help manage their condition.

Your GP will be able to determine if your child is eligible to claim rebates under this program and will provide you with the relevant documentation to bring to your appointment with us.

This program enables you to receive a partial rebate for up to five sessions over a calendar year.

FaHCSIA

South West Kids Clinic is also registered with the FaHCSIA to provide therapy services to children under the former Helping Children with Autism and Better Start initiatives.

Both of these programs are currently being replaced by the NDIS.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The NDIS is a national scheme that funds reasonable and necessary support to help people with a disability reach goals throughout life. It also supports carers of people with a disability.

The NDIS works with people individually and recognises that people have different needs and goals. It gives people choice about the support they need to live the life they want.

If your child has a significant and permanent disability or developmental delay, the NDIS helps you and your child get services and support in your community. It also gives you funding for support like early intervention therapies or one-off items like wheelchairs or communication devices.

For more information, contact the NDIS on 1800 800 110 or have a look at their website www.ndis.gov.au.

We are a registered provider under the NDIS, which means that regardless of whether your child is self-managed, agency managed or plan managed, we are able to provide therapy using funds from this scheme.

All children must have an active service agreement with SWKC in order to use our services under the NDIS.
