MEDICARE REBATES AND HOW CLAIMING WORKS
Clients with a Mental Health Care Plan from their health care provider (GP, paediatrician or psychiatrist) will be eligible for a Medicare rebate for 10 individual therapy sessions per calendar year, but will require a review by their health care provider following the first 6 sessions.
The rebate is currently $128.40 per session for a Clinical Psychologist and $87.45 for a Clinical Psychology Registrar. Full payment for the session is made to Approach Psychology at the time of the appointment and the Medicare rebate processed by our reception staff.
CAN i CLAIM THROUGH MY PRIVATE HEALTH FUND?
Clients not claiming Medicare rebates may be able to claim through their private health fund if they have the right level of cover. Private health insurance cannot be used to top up the Medicare rebate.
Please contact your health fund to find out if you are eligible to claim for psychological services.
