How Our Sliding Scale Billing Works.
Under our sliding scale system, session fees may be reduced depending on your circumstances.
E.g for unemployed individuals who are facing severe financial hardship, we slide our fees down to a low of $135 per session ($135 Fee – Medicare Rebate ($84.80) = Approximately $50 Out of Pocket per session). The exact amount is determined on a case-by-case basis. If you feel these circumstances apply to you, please get in touch and discuss it with your psychologist before your first session.
Medicare will provide a rebate of $84.80 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year with a valid referral from a GP or Specialist. This brings your out of pocket expenses to $80.20 per session.
To get a referral (and rebate) to a psychologist, you have to book an appointment with your GP and let them know you need a mental health care plan (MHCP) when you make the appointment. Your GP will then work with you to develop this MHCP and write you a referral letter to a psychologist if necessary. This referral letter MUST be addressed to one of our psychologists, you can find our details below. You need to ensure that we receive a copy of your MHCP and referral letter either before or during your first session to be eligible to receive your rebate. The MHCP is valid for a total of 6+4 sessions a calendar year.
Before you go about getting this document it is advised that you give us a call or have a chat with us to find out which of our psychologists would be a better match for your concerns.
Please address your referrals to the psychologist you wish to see;

USING PRIVATE HEALTH COVER
Private health insurance may offer significant rebates depending on your particular policy and level of cover.
This could range anywhere from less than $50 to the full amount but you should always check with your provider before you book a session with a psychologist. You do not need any referrals to claim private health rebates and can just make a booking with us directly.
The amount you will be rebated varies greatly between providers, it is always a good idea to check with both us and your health insurance provider beforehand to make sure that your sessions will be covered. If you are covered, you will only have to pay the gap fee.
