National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
Occupational therapy services funded through NDIS generally incur no out of pocket costs to the participant, but are charged according to the NDIS price guide with standard fees of $193.99 per hour.
Should you wish for your session to be conducted in your home or another community location (within 30 km of or Perth Clinic), travel is billed according to the NDIS price guide. Please contact us for an estimate of travel fees, if required.
Mental Health Treatment Plans (MHTPs) formerly known as Mental Health Care Plans (MHCPs):
Sessions booked through the Health Better Access Initiative are charged at $190 per hour, with a Medicare rebate of $77.80. Your GP will need to write a Mental Health Plan and write a referral for Focused Psychological Services.You are welcome to attend a session without a referral, however no Medicare rebates are available for this service.
GP Management Plan (GPMP):
Sessions booked through a GP Management Plan are charged at $190 per hour, with a Medicare Rebate of $55.10 per session. GPs are only permitted to prescribe a maximum of five Allied Health consults per calendar year (total value $275.50 back from Medicare). The eligibility and specific mix of these services are determined by the General Practitioner, so if this must be specified in the referral they issue to us.
Private Health Fund
If you have Occupational Therapy cover in your Private Health, you may be eligible for a rebate for this appointment (varies depending your fund and level of cover but averages approx $62).
We also explore your rebate options at this session including National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA), Medicare and private health fund options to cover part of, if not all of your Brain Training Program with us.
Your maximum health refund rebate is decided by your Health Fund and your level of cover and we recommend you check this out with your Fund provider in advance of attendance to avoid disappointment.
Doctor / GP, Psychiatrist and External Specialist Referrals
We welcome GP referrals for clients to attend our Occupational Therapy team who deliver our services for any health and mental health related issues such as sleep related issues, anxiety and chronic fatigue syndrome wishing to access our blended modality therapeutic approach. GPs may refer clients to us on GP Management Plans, Mental Health Treatment Plans (MHTPs) formerly known as Mental Health Care Plans (MHCPs), DVA Management Plans and referrals are also accepted via the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
For all GP Referrals – please complete a contact form on any page of our website so that we can provide you with the referral details for your GP to appear on your Management Plans.
Do I need a GP Referral?
No, but you can attend on a GP referral. While we do receive many referrals from Doctors/GPs, Psychiatrists, and Specialist Healthcare Professionals, is it not essential to provide a referral to access services at Brain Training Australia as we are also open to the general public who can just pay as they go, without accessing rebates. Our blended modality approach is in line with Occupational Therapy and Psychological Intervention approaches to help our clients achieve their mental health goals. Many clients attend their Doctor or existing Psychologist in supplementary to the work we do.
Employee Assistance Provider (EAP) access:
We also have many clients have been able to get the cost of the training partially or fully reimbursed by their employer as part of Employee Assistance program (EAP) or Staff Health & Wellbeing. Please check with your employer if they allow access to these services and if so then just complete a contact form on any page of our website to send us a message.
