Your child may be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate when they access services through Aspire Allied Health. Please review these commonly asked questions:

  • Do I need a referral from my GP/paediatrician to use the Medicare rebates?
    Yes, you do. We cannot process your claim without one.

  • Can I claim the gap on my private health fund?
    No, you cannot. You need to choose whether you will claim through Medicare or private health funds. You can use your Medicare sessions and then use private health funds for remaining sessions.

  • Do you communicate with the referring GP?
    Yes, at the first and final sessions, your therapist must report back to the GP.

  • Can you process our Medicare payment in the clinic?
    Yes, we can. This enables you to pay the gap only.

  • Are there any out of pocket expenses
    Expenses not covered by Medicare must be paid for by the family. Any out of pocket costs will count toward the Medicare safety net for that family. Gaps cannot be claimed through your private health fund.

Please cancel or reschedule appointments that you are unable to attend by 8.30am on the day of the appointment (or at least 45 minutes before for appointments prior to 8.30am). Aspire Allied Health requires a 90%of the fee as the cancellation fee for all appointments that are cancelled/rescheduled, with no adequate notice. We understand that extenuating circumstances occur and try to be as flexible as possible, however we appreciate your consideration and communication.

It is our goal to accommodate the needs of our clients professionally and economically, to ensure that your needs are met, please be aware of funding and payment options that are available to you. Occupational therapists at Aspire Allied Health will assist families with completing funding applications as requested.
