Full before rebate payment of fees is required at each consultation. If you are referred under a GP Mental Health Plan your current Medicare rebate will be at least $124.50 per visit* for up to 10 consultations within a calendar year. Alternatively, you will be able to claim a rebate from your private health insurance fund if you have cover that includes psychology.
Online Medicare claiming and major debit/credit card (excluding American Express and Diners) facilities are available. Payment also can be made by cash or cheque.
Fees apply when cancelling or postponing appointments with less than 2 working days’ notice. Medicare rebates do not apply to telephone or video consultations.
* Most of the fee is rebated if you have reached the Medicare Safety Net threshold.
