Funding Options

 

Please give us a call to discuss the funding options that would best suit you. 

Better Access to Mental Health (Mental Health Care Plan)
 
This is probably the most common way for someone to link in with a psychologist for counselling support. This allows you, or the person you are supporting to access up to 10 medicare supported sessions per year. The gap between this rebate and our price varies depending on the service provided.
 
Generally a minimum of $84.80 is refunded to you after each 50 minute session with a psychologist. To get a Mental Health Care Plan simply ask your GP to write one up. 
 

 

Private Health Funds

 

Our clinicians are authorised providers for most private health funds. In order to find out whether rebates are available the family must first contact their private health fund to confirm that your plan covers Occupational Therapy and Psychology services.
