All fees are eligible for Medicare rebate of $89.65 if you have a valid Mental Health Treatment Plan.

The rate for a General Psychologist for a 90-minute assessment session is $260.00. If clients have a Mental Health Treatment Plan through Medicare clients receive a rebate of $89.65 with their out-of-pocket cost totalling $170.35 for a 90-minute session.

A standard 50-minute session with a General Psychologist is $222.65. If clients have a Mental Health Treatment Plan through Medicare clients receive a rebate of $89.65 with their out-of-pocket cost totalling $133.00 for a 50-minute session.

Telephone consultations for 30-minutes is $153.00.

Parent sessions (2-individuals) for 50-minutes is $260.00. 

Family sessions (3 or more individuals) for 50-minutes is $280.00, or $93.35 per person. 

You do not need a referral, as everyone is welcome to access therapy privately. If you would like to receive a rebate however, through Medicare a referral and a Mental Health Treatment Plan is required. This can be obtained from your GP, Paediatrician or Psychiatrist.

Medicare provides a significant help towards your session costs; however, it is not intended to cover the whole cost. Medicare provides a rebate for mental health disorders when you or your child is referred by a GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician and can obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan through the Better Access Initiative. A maximum of 10 sessions is claimable per calendar year. The current Medicare rebate amount with a MHTP for a consultation 50-minutes+ is $89.65 for a generally registered psychologist.
