Fees

Therapy

The rate for a standard 50 minute session is $250, which is less than the Australian Association of Psychologists Inc recommended fee of $300. which must be paid in full at the time of your appointment. You can review the cancellation policy here.

Medicare

 

If you have a Medicare card and live in Australia, you may be eligible to receive Medicare rebates under the Better Access scheme for up to 10 sessions in a calendar year (from January to December). The rebate for Clinical Psychologists is $137.05 per 50 minute session.

In order to receive a Medicare rebate, you need to have a valid referral (Mental Health Care Plan) from a GP, psychiatrist or a paediatrician. You can claim the rebate yourself following your appointment using the Medicare app, or we can process it for you provided we have a copy of the referral and your medicare card details.

 

Only sessions that you attend are eligible for rebates

If you forget a session and are charged the non-attendance/late cancellation fee, this will not be eligible for a rebate as no service has been provided.

 

The rebate amount varies depending on the length of time you attend

The rebate of $137.05 can only be applied if you attend your session for the full 50 minutes. If you are late, the rebate you are eligible for will reduce; if you attend for more than 30 minutes but less than 50 minutes, the rebate amount will be $93.35. If you attend the session for less than 30 minutes, this session will not be eligible for a rebate. Regardless of the rebate/time you attend, the session fee of $250 will still apply as the 50 minutes was set aside for you.
