Fees for service vary depending on whether you have a 50-minute session or an 80-minute session. A long session is often used for EMDR.
Fees do not apply if you have been referred by Open Arms, Victim Support Service ACT, or Converge EAP.
The current rate for a 50-minute session is $170.
A referral from your General Practitioner (GP) or psychiatrist is required to access Medicare rebates for focused psychological sessions. Medicare rebates are provided under a Mental Health Treatment Plan.
A mental health treatment plan is completed by your GP and provides access to Medicare rebates for up to 10 individual sessions per person, per calendar year. These sessions can be conducted face-to-face or via video consult. As of 1/7/23 Medicare provides a rebate of $81.90 per standard consultation with an Accredited Mental Health Social worker.
Private Health Funds may offer a rebate for focused psychological therapy with an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. Clients are encouraged to check their coverage with their nominated health fund.
All psychology services are exempt from GST. Payments are made on the day via direct bank transfer or Eftpos.
