You or your loved one will be eligible for a Medicare rebate when accessing GRP Speech Pathology services.
A Medicare Plan from your GP or specialist is required at your first session in order to claim the rebate.
Please note that we charge a gap fee, so you will have some out of pocket expenses.
The following is an outline of the Medicare rebates available when receiving Speech Pathology services:
CDMP – Chronic Disease Management Plan
5 sessions per calendar year
You can not pay the gap with your private health insurance. CDMP plans needs to be shared across allied health providers. i.e. 5 sessions equals 5 in total across OT, Physio, Podiatry and Speech Therapy if you’re accessing more than one service at a time.
PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE
Depending on your private health fund, you may be eligible for a private health rebate from your Speech Pathology sessions.
In order to claim your rebate, simply present your GRP Speech Pathology invoice to your private health fund and they will reimburse your nominated account.
Your eligibility for a rebate and amount will depend on your specific health coverage. Private health rebates do change and coverage may differ depending on when you purchased your private health insurance. We advise checking your annual limit with your private health fund.
If you would like to check exactly how much you will get back for therapy services with your specific private health fund, please contact your health insurance fund directly and quote the following codes:
