Funding and Payment Options

Our music therapy services are available to all people across the lifespan who live with a variety of social, physical, emotional, social, medical and neurobiological conditions that they believe will benefit from music therapy. Many of our clients use NDIS funding to pay for their services. You can also self-fund for services.

We are NDIS registered providers and our services come under “Capacity building: Improved Daily Living” funding streams under the following items:

According to the NDIS Price Guide for 2020-21 (as of 1 December 2020), these support items have been temporarily duplicated into the Core- Assistance with Daily Life Support Category so that participants can have greater access to these supports if they need them and they directly relate to a participant’s significant and permanent functional impairment and assist them to undertake activities of daily living:

Our therapy team consists of experienced Registered Music Therapists (RMT) and Allied Health Therapy Assistants (AHTA) who work under the direct supervision of our RMTs.

Our fees are set in line with the NDIA price guides. We charge you a fee for service that covers your face to face session, some of the non-contact planning and clinical note taking time, any travel required, any reports needed for NDIS reviews, and support team meetings as required.

We review our fees twice a year in line with the NDIA recommendations and price guidelines. You will receive an invoice after you have participated in your session. Usually we send these to you on a fortnightly basis.

You can find our fees, including our contact, non-contact, travel, assessment and report writing fees in our fee schedule.

Your invoice includes the music therapy service, the non-contact fee, and a travel fee if you have received a home or site visit. The non-contact fee covers the minimum amount of time we spend preparing resources and materials for your treatment sessions, documenting the outcomes weekly, reviewing goals and objectives, as well as time spent planning and talking to your team members to ensure your progress is always optimised.

If you are using NDIS funds and have signed your service agreement, your services will be GST exempt. If you are self-funding services GST is charged as per the ATO rules.

Please note that our RMTs and AHTA staff are charged at different rates as per the NDIA guidelines.
