The cost of your allied health services will be determined by your eligibility for the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) or a Home Care Package (HCP). In some cases, you may be asked to make a co-payment. In others, you may not need to pay anything at all.
If you’re not eligible for CHSP or a HCP, you can still access allied health services through Medicare, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, or through a privately-funded arrangement.
