NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME (NDIS)

Inspire Health and Medical is a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) registered service. The NDIS provides assistance for individuals 65 years and under living with a significant and permanent disability – including physical, intellectual, sensory and psycho-social concerns.

We are currently registered to provide under the support category ‘Improved Daily Living’. If you have funding in this category, you are able to use it to access psychological services and therapy provided by a Psychologist or Counsellor.

You may also be able to use your funding to access services provided by a Dietitian.

HOW CAN I ACCESS THE NDIS?

If you would like to use your plan funding for psychology or counselling services you will need to call and identify yourself to our intake team as an NDIS funded client. One of our intake team members will ask you to provide some basic information regarding your plan to organise an appointment with one of our psychologists or counsellors.

WHAT SERVICES CAN I ACCESS?

If you have an NDIS funded plan you are able to access individual therapy sessions provided by a registered psychologist/counsellor or provisionally registered psychologist.Depending on what your plan includes, you may also be able to access group therapy sessions and psychological assessments.

DO I HAVE TO SEE A SPECIFIC CLINICIAN?

No, all of our psychologists and counsellors are registered to provide therapy services under Inspire’s NDIS registration. To help you choose the person who would fit your needs the best, you can view a brief description of each of our Psychologists and Counsellors under the ‘Meet the Team’ tab of the website.

HOW WILL MY SESSION BE PAID FOR?

Self managed – managed by the NDIS participant themselves or someone who acts on their behalf. Invoices are sent directly to the participant.

Plan managed – a plan management service will manage your funds on your behalf. YVP will invoice the plan management service for your sessions.

HOW MUCH FUNDING WILL I USE?

Each session of Individual Counselling costs $156.16 as per the NDIA price guide 2019/20 – clients whose plan began as of July 1st 2019 fall within this price guide.
