Our Fees

Our Teaching Clinic

Our teaching clinic offers a more affordable alternative for clients and families who may be struggling with the costs of accessing private speech pathology services.

Consultations are offered at a reduced rate of $150.52 per hour to reflect the student teaching component of service delivery.

The quality of our services remains high, because students are closely supported by highly experienced specialists.

As a compassionate healthcare provider, we do our best to support clients experiencing financial hardship, to increase community access to high quality healthcare.

Our Private Practice Clinic

We offer private practice speech pathology services for children and adults. These services are delivered by our experienced speech pathologists, with no involvement from students, and attract industry standard rates of $193.99 per hour.

Reports, client related clinical activities, and travel

In both clinics, non face-to-face client related clinical activities that take longer than 15 minutes (e.g., report writing, client related meetings etc) and travel time are billed at the same rate as client facing clinical activities. If applicable, these charges are discussed with our clients ahead of time.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

We are able to see NDIS participants who are either plan managed or self-managed.

Your invoices can be sent directly to your plan manager for payment or can be paid at reception at the time of your consultation.

Funding Agencies

We are able to directly invoice other funding bodies on your behalf, such as the TAC, My Aged Care DVA and others. Please let us know which funding stream you are covered by prior to your first appointment and we will confirm whether we are an approved provider.

Medicare Rebates.

Speech pathology services are eligible for a Medicare rebate under the Chronic Disease Management Plan for up to 5 sessions per calendar year. If you are eligible, these plans must be obtained from your GP prior to attending the initial consulation. Your Medicare rebate can be claimed directly at our clinic.

Private Health Insurance Claims

We are pleased to provide the necessary invoice receipts for Private Health Insurance rebate claims. Currently, we are not able to process your Private Health Insurance rebates at the clinic. It is your responsibility to ensure you are covered for our services, prior to booking your first appointment. If you are planning to attend the teaching clinic, please check with your provider if students involvement in your care will impact your ability to claim.
