Funding Initiatives

Fees & Rebates

Medicare Benefit Schemes:

At Speech on Eyre, Karen is happy to work with your General Practitioner to provide therapy under a CDM plan. The Chronic Disease Management scheme is initiated by your General Practitioner and available to children and adults with Chronic Care needs. People with Autism are automatically eligible for the CDM because an Autism Spectrum Disorder is a chronic condition.

The Medicare rebate is available for five sessions of Allied Health therapy, including:
  • Speech Pathology, per calendar year.
  • Please note that CDM plans are ONLY allowed to be used for Individual Therapy sessions. The CDM Plan does NOT allow for Group Therapy sessions, including Social Skills Groups, to be claimed by Medicare.

For more information about the CDM program you can download the following Information Sheets from Medicare and Speech Pathology Australia or speak to your General Practitioner.

NDIS Benefit Schemes:

Speech On Eyre is a registered provider with NDIA and is currently working with both children and adults using this scheme. We provide assessments and ongoing therapy based on your NDIA goals listed in your plan. SOE is currently seeing clients whom are NDIA managed, plan managed and self-managed.

Costs are available on the NDIS website, using the following link:
