All of our psychologists are registered providers of psychological services under Medicare. Under this scheme, clients with a diagnosed mental disorder may be able to obtain a Medicare rebate for up to 10 therapy sessions per calendar year. The term "mental disorder" covers a range of diagnoses, including Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Eating Disorders, Psychotic Disorders, Substance Abuse, and a range of childhood emotional and behavioural disorders. Please contact us or speak with your doctor to obtain more information about this option. To be eligible for this rebate, a referral is required from your GP, Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician. Sessions can only be billed under Medicare when the individual listed on the referral has attended.
Many funds provide rebates for clients with "Extras" cover. You may be able to obtain your rebate at the time of your appointment by means of our HICAPS electronic claims facility.
At least 48 hours notice is required to change or cancel appointments, or a cancellation fee will be charged. The cancellation fee is 100% of the full appointment fee for less than 24 hours notice, or 50% of the full fee for less than 48 hours notice. Medicare does not cover cancelled appointments.
