Fees

 

 

Bulk billing:

Bulk billing is no longer available due to the recent changes by the federal government.  Clients that have a concession card must now pay by a credit card / debit card immediately at the start of the session.  For concession card holders the session fee is $100 and you will be out of pocket approximately $7 for the visit after your Medicare rebate. You will need to have $100 in your account on the day of the session.  Medicare state that two to three days after the money has been withdrawn the amount of $93.35 is paid into your nominated account by Medicare.  If you cancel your session at short notice Medicare will not issue you a rebate.  Cancelling at short notice (48 hours before the booked time) will result in a $100 payment that Medicare will not contribute any money to.  So attend sessions that you have booked even if it is via telehealth. 

 

Private health or self funded session fee:

A standard 50 minute psychology session cost $280.  If you have private health insurance you may receive a registered psychologist rebate from Medicare.   The fee is applied to your credit card at the end of the session and an invoice is emailed to you.  You must seek any rebate directly with your insurer.  The current Medicare rebate is $93.35.    If you are in financial distress and or a student then a reduce fee will be arranged.

 

NDIS fees:

A booking fee is not charged for an NDIS appointment.  The standard NDIS fee of $214.14 is charged.  Travel time is charged in 30 minute blocks at the standard NDIS fee.

 

Initial booking fee:

A $100 booking fee is charged for the first session.  This fee must be paid by a credit card.  This fee is not refundable but you can reschedule your appointment 48 hours before the appointment time.

 

Cancellation fee

If you cancel within 48 hours of the appointment time no fee is charged unless it it is your first session.  You may change your appointment time if done 48 hours without incurring a fee.  Within 48 hours of the appointment the full fee is charged.  This is because Medicare does not provide a rebate if you do not attend an appointment.
