Payment Details

Medicare Rebate

Payment for services must be made at the time of the consultation by eftpos/direct debit, credit card, or cash.

If you are referred by your doctor under a Mental Health Care Plan you are eligible to claim a Medicare rebate of $124.50.

The standard consultation fee is $180 for per 50 minute session. A discounted fee of $150 per 50 minute session is available for health care card holders, children, students, veterans and pensioners. The standard gap fee for medicare referrals therefore is $55.50, and the discounted gap fee for medicare referrals is $25.50.

Medicare payments are able to be processed electronically at the time of payment, therefore you will only be required to pay the gap fee.

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.
 

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, and that full fee payment will need to be made at the time of teh consultation.
