Medicare Rebate: If you have been referred by your GP under a GP Mental Health Care Plan, you will be eligible for an on the spot rebate of $88.25 for your psychologist fees. Speak to you GP or Psychologist for further details.
Private Health Rebate: For those clients who have chosen to use private health cover, your health insurer may offer a rebate for psychology under their “Extras” provision. Please ask your health insurer about your cover as this varies between funds. The item codes you will need to quote are 100 (Initial visit) or 200 (Subsequent visit).
Please note that if you are utilising a Medicare rebate, your private health insurer is unable, by legislation, to cover any gap payment.
