My fees are guided by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) Schedule of Recommended Fees, however my fee for service is kept to a minimum leaving clients with a small gap payment. My practice does not offer bulk billing.
To be eligible to receive the medicare rebate you will first need to visit a GP who will assess you against certain criteria and, if eligible, prepare a Mental Health Care Plan and provide you with a referral to take to your Psychologist. Referrals can also be made by Psychiatrists.
If eligible, you could receive rebates for up to 20 face-to-face or telehealth sessions per calendar year. Referrals are usually for a maximum of 6 sessions, so you will be required to return to your GP for further referrals or reviews after the 6th and 10th consultations. Further to these individual sessions, you are also entitled to receive rebates for 10 support group sessions per calendar year.
