Fees & Rebates

If you are referred to our service under a Mental Health Care Plan submitted by your General Practitioner (GP) or Psychiatrist may be eligible to a rebate from Medicare for each counselling session with a up to a maximum of 10 sessions per calendar year.

After the Medicare rebate, your gap fees for service will be $50 – $70 (depending on whether you have a current Health Care Card or not and location of service). We do not generally Bulk Bill for services.

You will need to check with the specific Health Fund regarding amount of rebate as this will vary on the type of cover you have.
