SWEP Communique - Changes to Guidelines for Supply of Voice Prostheses

2 October 2017

The State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP) has received additional funding from the Victorian Government that has enabled us to review guidelines in relation to the number of voice prostheses that can be supplied per annum. 
As of July 1, 2017, eligible clients will be able to apply for a maximum of 3 voice prostheses over a 12-month period from the date of the first application.  
Additional demand for this item category will be carefully monitored over the next 12 months. 

What does this mean?
Clients can now access a maximum of 3 voice prostheses per year. 
Please note, there is no change to the maximum subsidy level ($450) per voice prosthesis.
What do you need to do?
Prescribers will need to submit an EVA script for each voice prosthesis requested per client. (This is in recognition that the size/type of voice prosthesis required by an individual frequently changes). 
Further Information.
If you require further information or clarification please contact Fiona Wakeling, SWEP Deputy Director on 03 5333 8104.
