Fees

Schedule of Fees at 1st August 2019

The Current Recommended Fee for Psychological Services set by the Australian Psychological Society is $254 for a 45-50min session.

Medicare Rebates

As at 1st July 2019 the Medicare rebate for Psychological Services has increased after a lengthy freeze. The rebate is available for patients who are referred by a GP on a valid mental health care plan. This rebate is available for up to 10 sessions per calendar year, and can be processed in the office to ensure fast returns. Due to stringent Medicare rules, we are unable to accept gap payments only, and require full fees paid and then process the claim back to you via Medicare.

This year the rebate per session has been set by Medicare at:

Concession Fees

Concession rates may be applied if the person responsible for the account is unemployed, is on a disability pension, or is a fulltime student currently not engaged in any work.

Couple Sessions

At present Medicare do not allow rebates for couple sessions. If, however a patient is diagnosed by their GP with a mental health diagnosis and placed on a mental health careplan, rebates may be possible if couple sessions are deemed appropriate to restore the individual’s mental health concern. An initial consultation with the referred patient will be required to determine the suitability and validity of the requested sessions under the Medicare scheme to ensure compliance with their stringent rules. It should be noted that some Private Health Funds may provide rebates for couple therapy.
