*Medicare Rebates apply if you have a referral from your GP with a Mental Health Care Plan.

Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment of eligible mental health conditions with psychologists. You will be able to claim a proportion of your fees from Medicare if you have a referral with a “Mental Health Care Plan” (MHCP) from your GP. With a MHCP, Medicare will reimburse up to $141.85 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year.

Alternatively, a proportion of your fees may be redeemable from your private health insurance, depending on your health plan.

Fees for sessions with counsellors are $200 during office hours, with a $10 surcharge for after-hours appointments. As counselling appointments concern general distress, life difficulties and wellbeing, rather than treatment of clinical conditions, they do not attract Medicare rebates.

Appointments are typically 50-60 minutes. During your initial appointment your psychologist or counsellor will aim to gain a detailed understanding of you and your needs, which is important so that subsequent sessions are relevant and helpful to you.
