Payment Details

Medicare Rebate

Payment for services can be made at the time of the consultation by eftpos/direct debit, credit card, or cash. The standard consultation fee is $160.

If you are referred by your doctor under a Mental Health Care Plan you are eligible to claim a Medicare rebate of $124.50 per standard 45-60 minute consultation. This means that your maximum out of pocket expense will be $35.50 per consultation.

To find out if you are eligible to receive psychological services under Medicare ask your doctor if you (or your child) are eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan. Medicare rebates are able to be processed electronically at the time of payment into your designated bank account.
 

Private Health Insurance

Many private health funds offer rebates for psychological services. Please check with your health fund to see if you are able to claim. Please note that you are not able to use your private health insurance to cover the gap between the fee and the Medicare rebate.
 

Bulk Billing

Bulk billing is available if you have a health care card, or if you are a low income earner. This means there is no cost to the patient.
