You can receive a substantial Medicare Rebate when you have a referral from your GP. In most cases, your rebate will be transferred into your savings or cheque account almost immediately after the full payment is made.
You may be eligible to receive a rebate for up to 10 psychology sessions per calendar year. Please contact your GP for an appointment so that the necessary paperwork can be completed for the referral (Care Plan).
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information and assistance on how to obtain a GP’s referral to see one of our therapists in Mona Vale, Randwick or Caringbah under the Medicare Scheme.
Psychology fees are guided by the recommended rate of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), however our fee for service is kept to a minimum leaving clients with a small gap payment so no one is excluded from reaching their full mental health potential.
Discounted rate and bulk billing are also available on individual assessment. You can also check with your private health fund to see whether your private health care plan covers you for psychological therapy.
If your appointment is with a Counsellor or a Psychotherapist, please note that this does not come under the Medicare Scheme. However, these therapists charge the gap payment only keeping your out-of-pocket expense the same.
