Fees and Rebates
From 1st July 2019, with a GP referral and Mental Health Care Plan you will receive $126.50 rebate per session with a clinical psychologist, up to 10 sessions per calendar year. The rebate for psychologists is $86.15. When scheduling your GP appointment to obtain the referral, it is a good idea to request a longer appointment. This allows time to complete the necessary paperwork.
Please check with your private health insurance provider to ascertain if you are eligible for a rebate for Clinical Psychology services. If you are receiving the Medicare rebate, you will be unable to use your health insurance rebate at the same time.
Patients tend to access the Medicare rebate for the first 10 sessions and then use their private health insurance when Medicare has been exhausted for the year.
