Can I claim a rebate under Medicare?
If you have a condition that your GP regards as a mental health issue, you may be eligible for the Mental Health Scheme offered under Medicare. If you are issued with a Mental Health Care Plan by your GP, it will entitle you to a rebate for up to 10 sessions with one of our psychologists or mental health social workers. You will only need to pay the gap between the rebate and the fee.
If you see a Registered Counsellor, you will not be eligible for a Medicare rebate. However, other concessions and rebates may be available so that there is little cost difference between a psychologist and a counsellor.
If you have an eligible Mental Health Plan, please mention this to our intake counsellor during the booking process.
