Autism Initative - Macarthur CDC Intervention Services


HICAPS is a system that enables you to process your health fund claims on the spot in our clinic. Provided that your health fund participates in HICAPS, you will never have to wait in line at your health fund again.

You will need to check that your health fund provides coverage for speech pathology, occupational therapy or psychology and that your individual health plan accommodates these services.

You can then simply present you health fund card to our receptionist when you attend our clinic. Whether it be for assessment or therapy, we will take care of the rest. After swiping your card, we are able to see the size of the benefit that the health fund has paid for you, and we will then deduct that from our total fee so that all you pay is the gap. The size of the benefit that is paid by the health fund varies across funds and individual plans.
