Medicare is Australia’s universal public health insurance scheme. It delivers access to a wide range of health and hospital services at low or no cost.

Children’s occupational health requirements may be eligible for rebates under the following Medicare initiatives:

  • Helping Children with Autism Initiative (Children aged 7-15 years)
  • Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plan
  • Services for People of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island Descent
  • Better Access to Mental Health Initiative.

Australian Defence Force (ADF) Family Health Program

This program is available to dependants of permanent ADF members, and dependants of Defence Reserves on continuous full-time service.

Each family member can claim funds and/or use to offset the cost of allied health and medical specialist services.

Private Health Funds

We also provide services to families who are privately funded. 

Clever Bees and our therapists are authorised to provide occupational therapy services through most private health funds.

As available rebates vary depending on your health fund and level of cover, we recommend families first contact their private health fund to confirm if their policy covers occupational therapy.

 The hourly rate for sessions with our Paediatric Occupational Therapists is $194 before the application of any rebates.
