  • I understand and agree to the fee schedule, and that fees are subject to an annual increase on July 1st of each year;
  • I understand that if my third-party funding is not available, I am required to pay for services;
  • I understand that prompt payment of invoices will ensure ongoing therapy service provision. I agree to the Talking Works’ policy for settling accounts.

 

 

 

  • Payment is due on or before date of your appointment;
  • If off site, text or email office your bank deposit receipt to confirm payment;
  • Full payment is required prior to receiving assessment reports;
  • Mobile & Telehealth sessions require secured credit card details to ensure payment.

 

 

 

  • Late Cancellation Fee (less than 48 hours notice):
    50% of full fee + GST

 

  • Less than 24 hours notice or Non-Attendance:

  • Regular attendance at scheduled appointments is likely to lead to improved outcomes and progress in achieving therapy goals.
  • Cancelling/rescheduling three after hours or first appointments of the day within six months will lead to future bookings offered at alternative times.

  • Regular cancellations will decrease the opportunity for treatment goals to be achieved.
