Service fees

 

At Bright Minds Occupational Therapy we aim to provide a competitively priced service within the communities we service.

We understand that every family has different budgets, and we aim to provide the best and most valuable service within individual budgets.

There are many funding schemes which can assist families to access services including NDIS WA, NDIS, Private Health, Medicare, BSI and HCWA.

Whilst we do offer payment plans if required; it is important to carefully consider whether private services are within your families budget or whether a referral to public services would be more appropriate.
