Medicare Rebates

If you obtain a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP you are entitled to a Medicare Rebate of $131.65 per session, for 10 sessions per calendar year.

After you have paid for your psychology session, if eligible, Medicare will reimburse the rebate amount to your nominated bank account, usually within 24-48 hours.

If you have exceeded your Medicare safety net, your rebate may be even higher.

Please ensure Andrea has a copy of your referral from your GP or Psychiatrist prior to the first session to be eligible for the Medicare Rebate.

Can I book an appointment without a Mental Health Care Plan?

Yes, you can see a Psychologist without a referral or Mental Health Care Plan. The difference is:

  • You will pay the full session fee and not receive any rebates.
  • You can book as many sessions as you like, you won't be limited to 10 sessions per year.

Private Health Insurance

Please check with your fund to see if you are covered for Telehealth Psychology.

You will receive an invoice after paying for your session and if eligible can claim a rebate through your private health fund.

NB: you cannot claim both a Medicare Rebate and a Private Health Fund rebate for the same session.
