Medicare – Better Access to Mental Health Care
You may be eligible for assistance under the Better Access to Mental Health Care Plan. Medicare offers rebates for up to 10 individual and 10 group sessions a year if your GP thinks you are eligible under this plan. For information about the Medicare rebates available for psychology under the Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative please go to http://www.psychology.org.au/medicare/fact_sheet/ or speak to your GP. Please note, if you do have a referral from your GP you must bring the referral to your first session.
As a registered psychologist I am authorised to give you a rebate of $84.80 for each session.There is a maximum of 10 sessions per calendar year.
You are able to claim this rebate at the clinic.
Private Health Funds
Many private health funds cover both individual and group sessions. These rebates vary depending on your provider and your plan.
Hicaps is available to enable you to claim at the clinic.
Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
If you are in financial distress please speak to me as there may be a possibility of a reduced fee.
Cash and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay half of the cost of the session.
