    It's called CAPS (Continence Aids Payment Scheme) and it's done through Medicare... you can just ring them and they'll give you the number to ring or google it. You can get it in one lump sum or a split payment for the year.

    The paperwork was pretty simple, from memory the doctor had to fill in a section. Once they recieved the application it didn't take very long to get the payment through (compared to the wait we have for most disability items).

    I would have thought it was the same age nation wide because it's funded through Medicare... I know it's 5 and over in Vic. That's really unfair if it's different ages in different states.
