Payment Methods

Accepted methods of payment are cash, Eftpos or Credit Card. Medicare rebates are available on the spot for those with a Mental Health Treatment Plan. You will be required to pay the full fee and then Medicare will pay the rebate into your account immediately so you are only out of pocket for the gap amount.

In order to qualify for a Medicare rebate you must be referred by your GP, your psychiatrist or pediatrician. Your doctor will need to complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan before referring you to a psychologist. You will need to bring your Medicare card and your referral along to your sessions. For more information about Medicare rebates please see psychology.org’s fact sheet.

If you have private health insurance you may be eligible for a rebate through your health fund. Please check your policy for inclusions. You will be issued an itemised receipt at your session and can claim directly with your health fund.
