Initial Consultation fee is $210
Subsequent Consultation fee is $150 ( ~60 minute consult )
A Medicare rebate of $88.25 applies, if you have a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) / 'Better Access to Mental Health' referral from your GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician. This allows up to 20 (6 + 4 + 10) sessions per calendar year (to be reviewed by Medicare mid 2022)
A review from your GP is required after 6 sessions, this will then allow you to use the next 4 sessions, after which another GP review is required for a further 10 medicare rebated sessions.
After you have reached the maximum number of allowable sessions for the calendar year you will not be eligible for any further Medicare rebates for treatment you receive from a psychologist until the new calendar year.
We can process your medicare rebate claim on your behalf (at your request). Medicare will then pay your rebate into the bank account you have nominated with Medicare, within 2 business days.
please note: Bulk Billing is Not Offered.
