Professional Fees:

* During business hours only (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm). Bulk billing is not available after hours.
Medicare may pay up to 10 sessions in total for you per year. This includes sessions with another psychologist. After your entitlements for the year finish, the fee becomes $100 per session. DSP holders may be able to access further sessions through NDIS. Please contact NDIS directly to enquire about the support available to you.

After-hours: A $20 surcharge applies to all sessions after business hours (starting at or after 6pm) for all types of sessions.

Medicare rebates: Current rebate is $84.80 per session, available with a GP referral and MHTP.

WorkSafe/TAC/VOCAT/NDIS: Invoiced to the 3rd party (no gap fee payable by the client). However, a $20 surcharge is payable by the client for sessions starting at or after 6pm.

EAP: Invoiced to your organisation. Terms & conditions as per EAP contract.

REBATES:

If you have a referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan from a GP, or a referral from psychiatrist you can claim a Medicare rebates of $84.80 per session. This is available for up to 10 sessions per calendar year (1 January to 31 December) and your GP or psychiatrist will assess progress after 6 sessions.

If you have private health cover with "extra" features, you may be able to claim psychology rebates from the health fund. You need to check directly with them to see if you qualify, as we would not be able to access that information for you.

Clients requiring sessions under TAC, WorkSafe or VOCAT (Victims of Crime) claims need to bring a letter confirming prior approval of funding for psychology services from the relevant 3rd part. No upfront or gap fee applies, as we invoice the 3rd party directly.

Note:
* Note 1: Bulk billing require a referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan from a GP, or a referral from a psychiatrist.

Note 2: We bulk bill Medicare for clients who experience extreme financial difficulties (that is, for DSP and New Start Allowance recipients) because we believe that everyone should have fair access to professional psychology services. In exchange, we require commitment from those clients to attend their booked sessions. Therefore, bulk billed clients who fail to show up for a session with no notice given, who cancel a session with less than 24hr notice or who cancel two consecutive sessions, no matter the notice given, will lose the bulk billing advantage and standard fee will be required for subsequent sessions.

Note 3: Unfortunately, we cannot bulk bill for sessions with clients who have an income. If you are on a low income and experience financial difficulties, we are happy to offer a discounted fee (see above).

Note 4: The limit of 10 rebated/bulk-billed sessions per calendar year applies for all individual sessions, including sessions with another psychologist. When the allowance of 10 sessions per year has been used up and Medicare do not pay for the sessions, clients will be required to pay for the sessions. A discounted fee is available for these particular cases, contact us to enquire.
