Rise from the mud and overcome all obstacles,
Shine a light through the darkness and radiate into the world,
Grow stronger and with more resilient, as every petal opens.

The NDIS provides support to people with disability, their families and carers. It is jointly governed and funded by the Australian and participating states and territory governments. The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports to help you reach your goals, and take part in activities to increase your community participation.
We currently take referrals for self-managed and plan-managed participants.
The GP can provide you or your child with a referral to Lotus Therapy if assessed as being eligible, to claim a Medicare rebate for up to 5 allied health sessions per calendar year. The therapist will communicate with your GP after the initial and final session. The session is paid in full, then the Medicare rebate is actioned.
Depending on your private health policy, you may be entitled to receive allied health support under your extras cover for Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy sessions. The amount and frequency that rebates can be claimed varies between providers, so please check with your private health provider to see if your policy includes these services.
You can choose to fund for Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy assessments and interventions privately. Please email or call us to discuss fees and options for ongoing support.
There is a range of funding available to assist with the cost of assessments, therapy and equipment. Please contact us to see if you or your child is eligible for these funding streams and how to access these services.
