Deposits cannot be covered by any funding scheme except for NDIS.
You can use one of the following Medicare Plans. Mental Helath Care Plan, Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) or Helping Children With Autism Plan (otherwise called the 135) to receive a partial rebate from Medicare on remaining camp fees.
You will only be able to claim a maxium of up to 5 sessions during the camp period as you are only doing one session per day. As per Medicare's ruling.
The approximate rebates from Medicare are:
EPC = Approx $50 rebate per day
Mental Health Plan = Approx $90 rebate per day.
Helping Children With Autism Plan = Approx $70 rebate per day
Mental Health Plan (Group sessions) = Approx $15 per day (ideal for families who have reached their medicare threshold as you would then also get 80% of your out of pocket expense back from Medicare.)
