Fees

 

Rebates:

No referral is required for psychological services; however, a referral will be required if you wish to access Medicare rebates. 

Medicare rebates on psychological services are available for a range of individuals, including: 
 

  • individuals with a mental health diagnosis

  • children with a disability

  • women who have concerns about a current or recent pregnancy (within 12 months)

  • individuals with a chronic medical condition with complex needs

  • individuals who identify of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent who require follow-up allied health services. 
     

To obtain a Medicare rebate for psychological services a referral is required from a general practitioner (GP) or in some cases a psychiatrist or paediatrician. To receive a referral your GP will need to complete a Mental Health Treatment Plan prior to your first session and provide a written letter addressed to the psychologist of your choice. This may take longer than a standard GP appointment, and you may need to book a longer appointment with your GP. 

Private health funds may also provide a rebate for psychological services.
