Medicare Rebates

Medicare rebates are available for standard Psychology appointments. Up to 10 individual psychology sessions can be claimed per calendar year.

To be eligible for a Medicare rebate you will need a referral from your doctor. When making the GP appointment, ensure you ask for an extended consultation for a “Mental Health Care Plan” (this is the technical term for a referral to a psychologist).

The current Medicare rebate is $84.80 per session.

Private health funds

You may be eligible to receive a contribution towards psychological services through your private health fund. Please check the details of your cover with your provider if you intend to make a claim.  A referral from a GP is not necessary to claim through a private health fund.

Please note that you can only claim either a Medicare rebate OR a health fund rebate for psychology sessions, you cannot claim both.

 

Self-referrals

You are most welcome to ring and arrange an appointment without a referral from your GP, however you will not be able to claim a Medicare rebate.
