The Australian health system provides treatment for epilepsy for everyone. We can only fund epilepsy supports if they’re related to your disability. We may fund epilepsy supports if your disability means you can’t monitor or manage your epilepsy on your own.
We may fund a support worker or nurse to help monitor your seizures when they happen. We may also fund someone to help carry out your Epilepsy Management Plan (EMP) if you have a seizure. If you need medication, we may fund supports to help you carry out your Emergency Medication Management Plan (EMMP).
