You can simply call and make an appointment. Then take your receipt to your Private Health Fund for rebate. Enquire with your health fund to check that you are covered for sessions with a psychologist.

Claiming through Medicare:

Before you can use Medicare to claim psychological therapy fees, you need to see your GP.

  1. Go to your GP and discuss your main concerns.
  2. Your GP will decide if you qualify to receive a medicare rebate for psychological sessions under a Mental Health Care Plan or Enhanced Primary Care Plan (Chronic Health Issues).
  3. If you obtain a Mental Health Care Plan or Enhanced Primary Care Plan, your GP will write you a referral to a psychologist of your choice. It is important that you provide the name of the psychologist to your GP.
  4. Bring your referral to the first appointment with your psychologist.
  5. Payment can be made in cash, cheque,Bank Transfer or EFTPOS. Medicare claims processed on site.

Fees:

My fee is $110 for a 1 hour session. Most of this (about $85) can be claimed back through Medicare or your private health fund.

I have some spaces every week for Bulk Billing (no gap) clients. This is for clients who are Health Care Card holders, Financially Disadvantaged, Pensioners. There may be a waiting list for these appointments. Please ask me about Bulk Billing if you are having financial strain.

Brief Reports or letters to your GP, child's teacher, other therapists, are included in the normal session fee, as this is part of the normal process of providing intervention. You will be asked to complete a Consent to Release Information form and nominate anyone you require me to communicate with.
