Funding Options

Medicare Rebates: Medicare rebates require your general practitioner to provide you with a specific care plan. The whole paediatric occupational therapy session cost will not be rebated unless you have reached the Medicare Safety Net. There are two types of care plans I can accept:

  • The Chronic Disease Management Plan (previously Enhanced Primary Care Plan)
  • Helping Children with Autism Plan


National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS): Children with any developmental difficulty or formal diagnosis can apply for NDIS funded support. To find out if your child is eligible to receive occupational therapy under the NDIS, please contact 1800 800 110 or visit

Little Sparks Occupational Therapy currently sees NDIS participants who self-manage or plan manage their funding.


Private Health Insurance: Paediatric Occupational Therapy can usually be claimed through your private health fund depending on your level of cover. Please call your health fund to discuss this.
