How are travel charges calculated?
Fora calculates travel time using Google maps driving times regardless of whether the therapy assistant is driving or taking public transport.
- For example, the distance from your home to allied health assistant’s home via car is 40 minutes one way:
- you would be charged an additional 20 minutes to travel to your home and;
- an additional 20 minutes to travel from your home.
- Total = (20 minutes travel to home) + (Therapy session duration) + (20 minutes return travel from home)
The maximum charge for travel time in metro areas (according to the NDIS) is 30 minutes to participant’s location and 30 mins for return travel.
