You do not need funding or a referral to attend Barefoot Therapists programs however there are funding options to assist with the cost of services.
Barefoot Therapists is a registered NDIS provider who can provide services to all NDIS participants whether they are self-managed, plan-managed or agency-managed.
Our allied health practitioners (occupational therapists, speech pathologists and dietitian) are registered providers to deliver services under the Medicare Benefits Schedule. This means that with a Medicare referral from your GP or Paediatrician, you can receive a rebate for a portion of your out-of-pocket expenses.
Services delivered by our allied health practitioners can also be claimed under private health insurance. There may still be an out-of-pocket expense to you. Please call your private health provider to check your level of cover.
Charity organisations can assist with part or full cost of services.
We promote a model of care across our organisation which is child centred and family sensitive.
We are located at 1/16 Henry Wilson Drive, Rosebud (on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula) and Gadara Farm in Boneo.
