  • This is a private billing practice. All fees are due in full at the end of the appointment. Funding rules mean I cannot accept payment of the Medicare gap only.

  • For standard consultations my rate is $205 for 46-60 minutes, $230 for 61-75 minutes, and $255 for 76-90 minutes.
  • If you have a Mental Health Treatment Plan, a 50-60 minute consultation will cost you $78.50 once Medicare has refunded your rebate to you.
  • An out-of-hours fee of $10 applies to appointments from 4:30pm onwards.

Rebates

  • Many private health insurance funds provide rebates for psychology. Please clarify your entitlements with your provider.
  • Medicare rebates are available by referral from your doctor with a Mental Health Treatment Plan or a Chronic Disease Management Plan.
  • Clients with a Mental Health Treatment Plan currently receive a rebate of $126.50 for a 50-minute consultation with a Clinical Psychologist.
  • For your convenience, I can process your Medicare rebates for you using HealthKit online payments (which uses Braintree, a global payments system owned by PayPal), and EFTPOS HICAPS is available for processing many private health fund rebates.
