Referrals, Fees and Rebates

Individuals can receive treatment through Medicare or privately.

Medicare Referrals

Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment by registered psychologists under the Australian Government's Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative. People treated under the Better Access Initiative are able to receive 10 Medicare funded psychology sessions per calendar year. If you wish to receive treatment through Medicare, you will need to be referred by your GP or  Psychiatrist. For more information, please refer to the APS Fact Sheet.pdf.

Private Referrals

Individuals who self refer do not need to obtain a referral from their GP and will need to pay in full. Private Health Funds cover psychology visits and you may be entitled to a rebate depending on your provider and level of cover.

Fees and Rebates

My fee for a standard appointment is $180. Individuals treated by a Clinical Psychologist under the Mental Health Care Plan are able to receive a $124.5 rebate from Medicare, and your out of pocket expense will be $55.50.

Fees can be negotiated for longer term work for people experiencing financial hardship.
