Chronic Disease Management Plan (formally the Enhanced Primary Care Plan EPC)
This is an annual plan that entitles you to 5 rebates from Medicare for your speech pathology therapy sessions. You will need to meet with your GP to discuss your eligibility for this plan. Eligibility is based on if a child is deemed to have a chronic condition requiring ongoing care from two or more health professionals. If approved your GP will provide you with a written referral, which you must provide to your Speech Pathologist, before completing the first session under the plan. Your speech pathologist will then correspond with your GP to inform them of goals and progress made under the Chronic Disease Management Plan. Read More
