LiveBig offer therapy and assessment services to people, whether you’re on an NDIS plan or not. Our therapy services can be accessed by anyone with a disability who require them, while our assessment services can be for people needing assessment to receive an NDIS plan or those due for an NDIS plan review. No matter what services you require, LiveBig have many specialised allied health professionals out there to choose from. The hard part is finding the right specialist and provider for you.

Choosing the right LiveBig therapist

LiveBig have a range of specialist allied health professionals including occupational therapists, speech pathologists, exercise physiologists, physiotherapists and psychologists.

Our values shape our ethos and our staff have a shared drive to deliver responsive, high-quality professional services we can all be proud of. We get to know you to find out which of our therapists would best suit your needs, your personality, your location and your environment.

Paying for therapy and assessment services

There are two ways for you to pay LiveBig for your therapy and assessment services using your NDIS funds. You can either use myplace portal to make a payment request and pay for your services once the money comes into your nominated bank account, or pay for your services upfront and then make a payment request to get the money back.

Do you have questions? You can download a helpful guide from the NDIS website.

At LiveBig, you pay the NDIS price guide for all our therapy and assessment services. Every therapy service and assessment has a different cost. We like to be transparent, so have a look at the price guide or ask us at your service agreement meeting to confirm what you’ll be charged.

Managing your NDIS budget

There are three different ways you can manage your NDIS plan:

  • Self-managed: The NDIA provides you with funding so you can access the supports that will best help you achieve your goals. 
  • Plan-managed: The NDIA will provide funding in your plan to pay for a Plan Manager. This Plan Manager will pay your providers on your behalf, help you keep track of funds and take care of financial reporting for you.
  • NDIA-managed funding: The NDIA pays your providers on your behalf.

Working with your LiveBig therapist

Your LiveBig therapist will work with you, and the important people in your life, to create a personalised therapy plan to reach your goals. We’re available outside of standard office hours to fit in with you.

Of course, we’ll keep in touch to check everything is going well. The NDIS can be confusing and we want to make it easier for you. You’ll get a monthly statement from us so you can clearly see how much money you’ve spent on what services, and how much NDIS funding you have left.

Our specialised allied health professionals focus on getting things right for each person and their family. Whether you have simple, moderate or very complex needs, we want to help you LiveBig.
