Medicare

*Medicare subsidises the first 10 visits with a psychologist per calendar year for Australian residents. Currently, the rebate is $86.48 per consultation. Automatic rebates to your nominated account with medicare are available. To be eligible for the rebate your GP or treating psychiatrist will be need to make a referral to myself using a “Mental Health Care Plan” before your first session.  Please bring this referral with you to our initial appointment.  Skype or tele sessions are not medicare rebatable unless you are classified as living in a rural or remote area.

Please also bring any other reports or referrals from specialists that you may have. I also highly encourage first time patients to create a life time mood time line to bring along to their first session.

Health Fund Rebates

Your health fund may also subsidise a small portion of your appointment fee if you are not claiming the medicare rebate. Please check with your individual health insurance provider for your eligibility before you attend if you wish to claim. You cannot claim medicare and private health rebates for the same service at once.

Payment

Fees are payable upon the conclusion of your session. Medicare rebates are processed overnight.  Credit card and eftpos facilities available for your convenience.  American Express cards are not accepted.

Minors/Medico Legal/Work Cover Reports
