Fees and payments
We offer services for all members of the community. Some of our services prioritise access to people and families with greater health, economic and social needs. We set the costs of our services based on income ranges. These income ranges are based on the Centrelink Income Test for pensioners. See our current income tables.
If you are on a low income, or have a valid Health Care Card, our audiology fees are bulk billed with no gap.
If you are on a medium or high income, please refer to the fee and funding options table. There are multiple funding options including:
- Medicare rebates
- private health insurance rebates
- Helping Children with Autism (HCWA)
- NDIS funding under clients’ NDIS plans
Medicare on line and individual private health insurers can provide more information about available rebates

Do I need a referral to see the audiologist?
No referral is needed. A referral from a team care arrangement or from an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor or Neurologist will receive rebates.
