Initial assessment sessions typically an hour but can take up to 90 minutes, dependent on the needs. Following the initial assessment you will receive a summary letter including agreed recommendations for next steps. The initial assessment, including one hours admin time, provision and scoring of any standardised measures, and summary letter is $250.
A more detailed report can be included as part of the assessment. This will be billed on a pro-rata basis at $20 per 10 minutes beyond the one hours assessment admin time already included.
Assessment is often ongoing and if further specialised sessions are needed these are billed as treatment. The majority of treatment sessions are 50 minutes. Treatment sessions are $120. This includes the session itself plus 10 minutes for documentation and any follow-up between sessions.
There may be some occasions when we offer shorter ‘check-in’ sessions, normally towards the end of a course of therapy. These are charged on a pro-rata basis.
All services provided are within the scope of practice of occupational therapy and are provided by an occupational therapist. Private occupational therapy is not covered by MSI. However your personal or work insurance plan may cover you for occupational therapy assessment and/or treatment. Please check your coverage with your insurance provider. We do not offer direct billing but do provide you with all the information you need to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
We require 48 hours notice for cancellations. Cancellations within a 48 hour period or non-attended sessions will be charged the full session fee. Sessions cancelled with more than 48 hours notice can be rescheduled with no charge. However, repeated cancellations will incur a fee of half the session cost. In this event we will contact you before charging, to discuss cancellations and any changes needed, to clarify whether you wish to continue using your slot and ensure you understand that future cancellations would incur a fee. Repeated cancellations can have a negative impact on you being able to meet your therapy goals.
Invoices are sent via email after each session and are due on receipt. Payment can be made by etransfer or cash. No further sessions will be offered when there are outstanding invoices.
