Fees and Rebates


A Mental Health Care Plan or a Review of a Mental Health Care Plan from a GP, or a referral from a Paediatrician or Psychiatrist allows you to get a rebated of $129.55 (Clinical Psychologist) or $88.25 (Psychologist/Clinical Registrar) for a 50 minute session  for up to 10 individual and 10 group  sessions each calendar year (January to December). Sessions will be 50 minutes unless clinically indicated. Due to increased need for services with COVID-19 the Government have made available a further 10 sessions in a calendar year with appropriate referral.


Fees must be paid in full by cash, EFTPOS or credit card at the conclusion of each scheduled appointment. While the session fee needs to be paid in full at the time of service, HICAPS facilities are available meaning that the Medicare EasyClaim system can directly deposit the rebate into your bank account.


Cancellation of Appointments

Failure to give a minimum of 24 hours’ notice to cancel or change an appointment, or failure to attend will result in a $40 cancellation fee. No further appointments can be scheduled until the payment is made.


As required by Medicare, referral letters from GP’s should contain the following:

·       The child’s presenting problem

·       The number of treatment services the child needs to receive.

·       A copy of the Mental Health Treatment Plan (for GP’s).

·       Please contact your private health insurer to ascertain rebates through private health          insurance providers.
