Our Service Policies
If a participant, client or patient needs to cancel or reschedule an appointment, they are required to give Soaring Health 2 business days’ (Mon–Fri) notice. If a cancellation is made within 2 business days, 100% payment will be required.
Travel Expense Policy
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.
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.
Non–Contact 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.
