Clients referred by a General Practitioner (GP) or a Psychiatrist are eligible to receive Medicare rebates for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. The GP will need to complete a Mental Health Care Plan and a brief referral letter, both of which must be brought to the first session.
Clients without a GP’s referral are also very welcome to book an appointment, however the Medicare rebate is not available without a Mental Health Care Plan (private health insurance may cover some of the fees in this situation).
Medicare rebate: $124.50 per session
Full Fee Paying Clients: $240 per session (out of pocket cost = $115.50) .
There is a sliding scale for pensioners and students.
All sessions are 50 minutes.
Full payment is required on the day. Credit cards, EFTPOS and cash are accepted.
