FEES AND REBATES
No referral is required. You can refer yourself. Client's and Health Practitioners can refer by sending an email, making a phone call or by filling out this form. However, if you wish to claim a Medicare rebate, you will need to see your GP and be referred with a Mental Health Care Plan. You can also be referred through a Psychiatrist and Paediatrician in which case a Mental Health Care Plan is not required.
Or fees are significantly lower than what is recommended by the Australian Psychology Society which is $246.00 per hour.
Our standard fee for everyone is $140.00 - Medicare Rebate = $86.15 leaving you $53.85 out of pocket per hourly session.
If our fee is unaffordable, we can have a chat about other options.
Medicare allows you to claim rebates for six sessions, then you will require a re-referral in order to claim another four sessions. A maximum of 10 sessions can be claimed each calendar year. Medicare rebates are not available for cognitive or behavioural assessments.
