PSYCHOLOGY MEDICARE REBATE
If you have a valid referral from your doctor you can claim a Medicare rebate of $88.25 for Psychology and $129.55 for Clinical Psychology. Up to 10 rebates can be claimed per calendar year. You will need to pay the full consultation fee of $170 for Psychology and $210 for Clinical Psychology up front and the rebate will be submitted to your bank account within two working days. Alternatively, if you have not registered your bank details with Medicare we can provide you with a receipt to make a claim at your local medicare office.
PRIVATE HEALTH FUND REBATES
If you are NOT claiming a Medicare rebate AND you have private health cover that includes psychology services you can instantly claim your private health fund rebate via our HICAPS electronic claims system. This means you only need to pay the gap between the rebate and the full fee for each session (rebates will vary depending on your health fund and your level of cover).
Rebates will vary widely depending on your health fund and your level of cover. If in doubt, please check with your health fund or ask our reception staff for a health fund quote when you visit the clinic..
