SWEP Communique - Laryngectomy Consumables Program

3 June 2020

SWEP have recently received enquiries in relation to the Laryngectomy Consumables Program (LCP) and how the funding subsidy is applied. As per the Operational Guidelines for this program each LCP consumer can access up to $5,000 over a 12-month period towards the cost of the items listed in the Operational Policies.

Upon review we understand there has been some confusion in this area from our staff and practitioners.

We would like to clarify that the annual subsidy consumers are entitled is to be taken from the date of their first application and staff will ensure this process is followed.  If you are concerned your consumer may have been affected by this please contact the SWEP AT team and they can review this for you on a case by case basis.
