|Fee||Cost to you|
|With GP referral||$139.80||$55.00|
|With GP referral and HCC – Bulk Billed||$84.80||$0|
*The above schedule of fees is correct at the time of printing and subject to change. Bulk billing clients must have a current health care card (HCC). The reduced fee is available in exceptional circumstances and is at the digression of the service. Evening appointments are available for full fee patients.
If you have a referral from your GP you will receive an $84.80 rebate from Medicare. You can receive up to 10 of these rebates each year. All counsellors are registered psychologists. This means that you can claim Medicare, department of veterans affairs, and private health cover rebates. Find out more about rebates with these videos.
This standard rate includes time that your therapist will spend with you and additional time writing, researching, and coordinating your care. If you are entitled to rebate from Medicare or your health care provider, this amount may be reduced. A limited number of bulk billed sessions are available for people experiencing severe financial hardship or have a health care card. Contact us directly if you are unable to pay the full cost and we will discuss the options that are available for you.
#Please note that all payments are done via credit card or debit card only. And eftpos/cash payment options are not available. If you do not have a credit card or enabled debt card, speak to us to arrange an alternative payment method.
^ There is a shortage of registered psychologists in the community and missing your appointment denies other clients the opportunity to access support. Given the value of your psychologist’s time, both in session and preparing for your appointment, a cancellation fee may be charged. A cancellation fee of 50% of full scheduled fee will apply if you cancel with less than 48 hours’ notice, or 100% of the full schedule fee if you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice. A Medicare rebate cannot be claimed for cancellation fees. This fee will not be charged if another client fills your appointment, and may be waved in exceptional circumstances. If you feel that you cannot agree with this policy, please discuss this with your psychologist.
