North Coast Kids OT accept funding from:

  • Medicare
  • NDIS – National Disability Insurance Scheme


Please note Medicare rebates will not cover the entire cost of the session, however if you have met the yearly Medicare Safety Net then the rebate amount will increase.

Chronic Disease Management Plan
Eligible for persons with a chronic medical condition (i.e. that has or is expected to last more than 6 months) that requires multi-disciplinary care. This plan provides a Medicare rebate for up to 5 sessions that can be used across a combination of services.
Focused Psychological Strategies (Better Access to Mental Health Care Plan):
Eligibility can be decided by a GP or a mental health care practitioner. This plan provides a Medicare rebate for up to 10 individual sessions. The plan can be used for a year after the date of referral.


The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to people with disability, their families and carers. If you have a disability that is likely to be permanent and significant you can, subject to eligibility, receive funding from the NDIS.

You are eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) if you:

  • are under 65 years of age, and
  • are an Australian citizen or resident or permanent visa holder, and
  • meet the disability or early intervention requirements.

Families can use the NDIS eligibility check list to see if their child is eligible, available on the NDIS Website. You can apply for funding by calling your local NDIS office or by completing an Access Request Form.

Further Information for NDIS participants

North Coast Kids OT is not a registered NDIS Provider. We are eligible to accept referrals for clients who have selected to manage their own funding (Self-Managed) or have a private company manage their funds (Third Party Managed).

We are required to enter into a Service Agreement with every NDIS Participant who accesses our services. This agreement provides an overview of the estimated services to be delivered for the duration of the participants plan. We will require some details of your NDIS plan on your first visit. This information can be emailed or provided in the initial consultation. Payment for services will be required at the conclusion of each treatment session.
