Under the Better Access initiative, Medicare have now made seeing a Psychologist affordable. Consultations with a Psychologist attract a Medicare rebate if you are referred from a GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician with a Mental Health Treatment Plan.
With this plan, you will receive a rebate of $86.15 for each consultation for up to 10 sessions in a calendar year.
Through our Eftpos terminal, a refund will be transferred into your nominated Savings or Cheque account. This transfer goes into your account almost immediately.
Session fees are $160 for a 50 – 60 minute consultation.
Please note, as of 1 September 2019, fees are increasing to $170 per consult.
Private Health Insurance
If you have private health insurance with extras cover that includes psychological counselling, you may be eligible for a rebate. For further information, check your insurance policy or contact your insurance provider. Also, please note that you cannot claim from both Medicare and Private Health Insurance for the same consultation.
