Fees and Rebates
We are a Private Billing Practice
To see any member of the team, you are not required to obtain a referral unless you want to claim through the Medicare Better Access initiative.
Referrals can come from your General Practitioner or a Psychiatrist. Under Medicare, you are able to claim a rebate for 10 individual sessions (6 + 4) per calendar year, with a review by the referring doctor required after the initial six sessions. once you have received your Mental Health Care Plan you are also entitled to 10 group sessions in addition to your individual sessions.
Couples and Family sessions cannot be claimed through Medicare.
Payment is required at the time of consultation. We will process your Medicare rebate on the day with a current Medicare card and Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). The current Psychology rebate is $89.65 and the Clinical Psychology rebate is $131.65 (as of January 2023).
Many clients will continue with therapy beyond the number of sessions per calendar year rebated by Medicare. Some clients are eligible for a private healthcare rebate. Please check with your specific private health fund.
