At Bright Therapy we accept referrals from parents and carers (can self-refer), GPs, paediatricians, allied health professionals, schools, hospitals, community health centres and external agencies.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is available in the Sunshine Coast Area. Please visit https://www.ndis.gov.au/ for further details.
We accept referrals from participants with NDIS plans who are self managed and plan managed (i.e. use a registered plan manager or plan nominee). Bright Therapy can provide OT services for children who have funding allocated under the support category – “Improved Daily Living”.
Participants are charged as per the current NDIS price guidelines for Occupational Therapist supports in the Sunshine Coast area:
Payment for these NDIS funded services will be claimed after the session or an invoice will be provided. **Please note Bright Therapy is not a NDIS-registered provider and cannot accept referrals for participants who are NDIA-managed.**
Bright Therapy charges $190 per hour for all Occupational Therapist services in the Sunshine Coast area. This rate is consistent across all funding options.
24 hours notice is requested for appointment cancellations. If no and/or late notice is given, the full therapy fee will be charged. A short notice cancellation:
- Does not show up for a scheduled support within a reasonable time, or is not present at the agreed place and within a reasonable time when the provider is travelling to deliver the support; or
- Has given less than 24 hours business days’ notice for a therapy support. Please note, if your therapy appointment is scheduled for a Monday, notice will need to be given the previous Friday.
