Our practice has a HICAPS terminal which can process all EFTPOS and credit card transactions as well as deducting Medicare and private health fund rebates. You can also pay by cash or cheque. All payments are due at the end of the session.
If you are referred by your doctor to one of our psychologists, using a GP Mental Health Care Plan, then you will be eligible for a Medicare rebate for 6-10 sessions. This rebate is roughly $85-125 per session, depending on the length of the session and your psychologist. There will be a gap fee of roughly $75 which is payable at the time of your appointment. This may be covered in part by the Medicare safety net depending on your circumstances. Health Care Card holders are charged a lower fee that is negotiated before their first appointment.
