Our Service Policies

Cancellation Policy

If a participant, client or patient needs to cancel or reschedule an appointment, they are required to give Soaring Health 2 business days’ (MonFri) notice. If a cancellation is made within 2 business days100% payment will be required.

Please be mindful that cancellations incur the cost of the total time allocated to your appointment. This total includes the practitioner’s travel time to and from the appointment but not cost per kilometre. See our reduced travel fees for more information on how travel costs are calculated for in-home and community appointments.  

Travel Expense Policy

Home Consultation

Soaring Health charges a maximum of 30 minutes for each way of travel. This is calculated from the nearest clinic to a participant, client or patient’s home. This is billed at the standard rate of the practitioner. If we have multiple participants in your area, the total travel is divided among the participants in the area. Travel charges may change in line with NDIS guidelines.

Community Consultation     New policy update

 

There may be occasions on which you require a Soaring Health practitioner to meet you at an alternative location such as, but not limited to, your school, childcare centre, respite centre, park or assistive technology trial. For these community consultations, the practitioner’s billable travel time is capped at 30 minutes each way. Prior to your appointment, we will provide you with a fixed travel time based on the location of the community consultation. For more information, please discuss this with your Soaring Health practitioner.

NonContact Hours Billable

Soaring Health may bill for non-face-to-face (non-contact) hours dedicated to aspects of a participant, client or patient’s care and treatment such as scoring assessments, creating therapy plans, note taking, communicating with other service providers and researching specific strategies. The total contact and non-contact hours will not exceed the hours outlined in the Schedule of Supports (Section 4) of the Service Agreement provided at an individual’s initial appointment. 

Payment Terms Policy     New policy update

Our payment terms policy is designed to help clients and participants to manage their payments and ensure ongoing, consistent and timely access to Soaring Health therapeutic services and products. To enable this, we offer flexibility with payment methods and, in certain circumstances, payment terms. We accept a range of payment methods including eftpos, American Express, credit card, cash and bank transfer. For convenience, some participants and clients may be offered 7-day payment terms. In such cases, account settlement is due strictly 7 days from receipt of invoice. Payment within this timeframe ensures continued access to services and products and prevents any disruption to treatment. In the case that payment terms are not met, some services and products will not be provided and Soaring Health reserves the right to cancel upcoming appointments until payments are up to date. Effective from July 1, 2021.
