To receive a rebate from Medicare for your sessions, you will need to see your GP, Paediatrician, or Psychiatrist to obtain a referral under a Mental Health Care Plan. Mental Health Care Plans are available for a range of psychological conditions.
A referral under the Mental Health Care Plan will allow you to claim a rebate for up to ten (10) 50 minute sessions per calendar year. These appointments are generally broken down into six (6) initial appointments, and four (4) additional appointments. You will need to return to your referrer (e.g. your GP) to access the remaining 4 sessions.
All fee paying clients are required to pay the full fee for consultation on the day ($205). Then the Medicare Rebate of $126.50 will be processed back into your account.
Please remember to bring a copy of the Referral Letter and Mental Health Care Plan to your first consultation, without the referral you will not be able to receive the rebate from Medicare.
A reduced rate is available to clients with a Mental Health Care Plan who are experiencing significant financial hardship (please contact Leia or Kelly to discuss before your appointment).
If you are considering paying privately it is worth checking with your health fund before your first appointment to see what rebate you are entitled to under your insurance. Please be aware that you can only make a claim from one source (either Medicare or your health fund) for each consultation.
Leia and Kelly are able to provide various assessment services (see Assessment page). These fees will need to be discussed with Leia & Kelly.
Cancellation and No Show Fees are charged as follows:
Cancellation and No Show Fees are charged as this time has been set aside for you and cannot be filled at short notice. These fees are not covered by Medicare; they are payable by you (either the client; or should the client be a child/adolescent then the parent is responsible for payment of outstanding fees).
