Which budget is for Occupational Therapy in my plan?

Occupational Therapy is a support item listed under Therapeutic Supports (Group 0128).

To see what your current budget allocation is for OT, look at the section listed as CAPACITY BUILDING. 

Depending on what you and the planner discussed at your last planning meeting, will determine how much and what type of allied health you have budgeted for.

Please discuss with your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or Planner if you need assistance with your plan or budget. 

 

Service Bookings

Before your appointment a service booking will need to be created.

A service booking tells the agency you wish to use the funds in your budget for Occupational Therapy.

 

How does the Service Booking get created?

Information for the OT

For new and returning referrals we require a record of your consent and information of condition to be assessed.

The OT will need reports or other documentation which confirm diagnosis and primary conditions recognised by the agency. The OT will need to understand your accepted disability and make reference to it in your submissions and applications to the agency.

We do not need to see your plan, but please send us any other important information to ensure your outcomes and goals are addressed.

 

OT Practice and OT Assignment

Our clinical practice is assessment and treatment for adults.

We will match you with the OT with recent evidence of clinical practice to meet your request.

Current plans and budgets

When you have an existing budget to purchase requested items, the OT will contribute documentation to support the process of this purchase.

After the OT clinical assessment, the OT will provide reports and application forms within the criteria of the funding and referencing your goals.

Budgets for the purchase of items will be listed under CAPITAL in your plan.

 

Requests for additional budgets and support items

If you do not have a budget in the current plan to purchase recommended items or supports, the OT will work with you to determine the appropriate reporting and documentation required.

When you do not have items listed in your budget, your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) can help you navigate this process and understand what is budgeted for in the current plan.
