We’ve created a helpful list of common questions and answers about NCACCH referrals.
️Q: I received an SMS stating that NCACCH referrals expired on June 30th. What does this mean?
A: Don’t worry! It simply means that our referrals are valid from 1st July 20?/ to 30 June 20?/(financial year). If you had a referral during this period, it is no longer valid. To receive allied health services, you’ll need to apply for a new referral for the current financial year (1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024).
️ Q: Do I have to apply for a new Health Access Card (HAC)?
A: No, just because NCACCH referrals expire on 30th June every year, this does NOT mean your HAC has been cancelled.
️Q: How do I apply for a new referral?
A: Applying for a new referral is easy! Simply reach out to one of our approved NCACCH referrers listed on our website (https://ncacch.org.au/our-services/allied-health/elist).
️ Q: Can anybody apply for an allied health referral?
A: No, you must hold a current NCACCH Health Access Card (HAC).
️ Q: What is meant by Allied Health?
A: Allied Health services include Dental, Mental Health/Counselling, Nutrition/Dietitian, Physiotherapy, and Podiatry.
Q: How much am I entitled to?
A: The referral (or sometimes called a voucher) amount varies based on the Allied Health service you require. This will be explained to you when applying for a referral.
Please note referrals are based on a financial year and approval is required prior to making and attending an appointment.
