Available Rebates (Psychology)

Medicare

• Medicare Rebates require a Mental Health Care Treatment Plan to be in place with your GP, Psychiatrist or Pediatrician who then needs to provide you with a referral letter for your psychologist.

• Up to 10 session per calendar year.  A new referral letter is required after your initial 6 sessions.  Your GP or specialist who referred you may choose to undertake a review of your mental health treatment plan at this time.  

• Until June 2022, you are eligible for an additional 10 sessions per calendar year (total of 20).  A new referral letter is required from your GP after your 10th session. 

• Psychologist Rebate $87.45 per session

For more information on your eligibility for a Medicare Rebate through the Better Access to Mental Health initiative, please refer to the Department of Health’s fact sheet for patients.

Private Health Insurance

• You may be eligible to claim a rebate through your Private Health Insurer, however you cannot  claim a Medicare rebate for the same session.

• Please speak to your heath insurance provider for more information on possible rebates and how you are able to claim these.

Private (Non-Medicare) clients, DVA, Workcover, TAC, Victims of Crime (VOCAT) and NDIS (self-managed or plan-managed) clients are all welcome.  Please advise our friendly reception staff when making your appointment as not all of our psychologists are registered for these services.
