Depending on your individual circumstance, your prosthetic care will be funded by one of the following funding bodies:
EnableNSW – Prosthetic Limb Service provides funding for a basic prosthetic limb to all eligible amputees. Residents of NSW are eligible for admission to the PLS, provided they hold a valid Medicare Card. If you would like to find out more about the PLS please click on the following link:
The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides funding for eligible amputees under the age of 65 at the time of registration. Provided you have registered with the NDIS prior to being 65 you will continue to be funded. The team at APC Prosthetics have vast experience in navigating this scheme to ensure our client’s prosthetic care is optimised. See our guide here.

Patients with an insurance claim will be assessed comprehensively by a multidisciplinary team to determine the prosthetic management plan.
Once approval has been granted by your case manager, we will commence the prosthetics treatment immediately.
