The fee for a standard treatment session (50-60 minutes) is either $210 or $160 depending on the psychologist seen (Approx. $75 to $85 gap amount per session after Medicare Rebate - see below).
Under the Medicare Benefits Scheme, individuals receiving psychological treatment are eligible for a substantial rebate for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. In order to obtain these rebates, a Mental Health Care Plan is needed from your G.P. In most cases, the Medicare rebate can be claimed on the spot once the full fee has been paid for the session. Bulk-billing can also be offered to eligible clients e.g. those with government health care cards or pensioners.
You may also be able to claim rebates from your private health fund depending on your level of cover.
Standard appointments run for 50-60 minutes. Appointments are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
You do not need a referral from a Doctor to make an appointment. However, if you would like to claim Medicare rebates from your initial appointment, please ensure you bring a Mental Health Care Plan completed by your Doctor to your first appointment.
Please phone the office on 9904 4158 to make an appointment or to discuss any matters in further detail.
