We are able to provide services under Medicare with the Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative. To be eligible for this service you must be referred by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. Sessions of 50-60 minutes are $140 per session, with a rebate of $86.15 (gap payment $53.85). Clients with a Centrelink Newstart, Disability or Age Pension Card are bulk billed.
Sessions without a referral under the Medicare initiative, phone sessions and Skype sessions will be $140. Couples sessions are $150. Assessments for ASD with an appropriate referral are $140 per session. An appropriate referral from a paediatrician or psychiatrist will attract a rebate of $86.15.
Private Health Fund rebates are also available, but cannot be used if you receive a Medicare rebate. Services provided with Workcover, Department of Veteran Affairs, Victims Assist or Comcare approval are at no cost as they are fully covered by the insurer. We also provide NDIS services through self managed plans. Contact us to discuss these options further.
Clients seeking letters or reports from our psychologists will be required to pay a fee for this service. The fee will depend on the length of the report. If you require a letter or report please discuss this with our clinic or your psychologist.
