Fees

As a community health organisation cohealth aims to provide services at little or no cost.

Where a fee or co-payment for service is charged it is based on income and may also be determined by government funded programmes such as such as Home and Community Care (HACC), Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

Fees and co-payments are based on the Centrelink standards for low, medium and high incomes and are discussed with clients at the time of making an appointment or going on to a waiting list.

Below is a table providing a summary outline of cohealth’s fees or co-payments schedule for both individual appointments and group activities. The table also provides links to more information about each specific cohealth service.
