Rebates

Medicare Rebates

A referral to a Psychologist from your GP (also called a Mental Health Care Plan) allows you to claim a rebate of $128.40 for each session. Your GP will also write you a referral letter to give to your Psychologist with your Mental Health Care Plan. A referral letter from a Psychiatrist also allows you to claim a Medicare rebate of $128.40. You can claim a Medicare rebate for 10 sessions per calendar year. Bring your Medicare card with you to your appointment and we can process your Medicare rebates on the spot.

NB: Rebates are processed after the full fee has been paid

Telehealth Rebates for Rural and Remote Areas

Medicare rebates are now also available for sessions via videoconference (such as Skype or Zoom), for people living in eligible remote or rural areas. The fees for these sessions are the same as those for face to face sessions. Please discuss your eligibility for videoconference sessions with us when booking your appointment.

Private Health Fund

If you are a member of a private health fund with Extras you may be eligible for rebates for psychological therapy. Call your fund to check your eligibility. Bring your health fund card and we can process your rebate at the time of your appointment.
