Financial Support at Back To Basics
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The NDIS provides all Australian’s under the age of 65 who have a permanent or significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need in order to achieve their goals.
If eligible for NDIS, the individual will receive funding on an annual basis to buy the services and aids you need to achieve your goals and achieve optimal independence.
Back to Basics Health group is a registered provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDM)/Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC)
The Chronic Diseases Management Plan (CDM) is a Medicare-rebated funding program for people who have chronic medical conditions (classified as a condition that has been present for at least 6 months).
It consists of 5 (maximum) rebates per calendar year for Allied Health services (i.e. Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Osteopathy). If you are accessing more than one type of therapy you are entitled to share the CDM sessions across the therapists (i.e. not 5 rebates per service).
Mental Health Plan
The Mental Health Plan (MHP) is a Medicare-rebated funding program for people who have mental health conditions (anxiety, depression etc.) It consists of up to 10 rebates per calendar year for Occupational Therapy and Psychology services. An extension of 4 further sessions can be applied for by your Psychologist or Occupational Therapist in extreme circumstances.
Private Health Insurance
Some of the costs of therapy may be rebated by your private health fund. Please contact your individual fund as to whether you are eligible for a rebate.
Workcover and TAC
Workcover and TAC may provide funding for you to access our services. Please let us know when you call if you are planning on using this funding to pay for therapy services as there may be a gap payment required.
Home Care Packages Program
The Home Care Packages program supports older people with complex care needs to live independently in their own homes.
If eligible there are 4 levels of home care packages from level 1 for basic care needs to level 4 for high care needs.
Support can be obtained for help with household tasks, equipment, minor home modifications, personal care and clinical care such as nursing and allied health services.
