Psychologist Fees

Our Fees & Rebates

We're a low gap-fee private billing psychology practice. Making mental healthcare accessible to all is very important to us. In addition to our low gap fees, we provide reduced fees for outcalls and couples counselling.

Psychologist Perth Fees & Rebates

We accept Medicare Rebates, Most Private Health funds and Self-Referrals.

$140 Full Session Fees Before Rebates

This is nearly half of the APS recommended fees for 2018-2019. If you are eligible for Medicare or Private Health Rebates, your out of pocket fees will be significantly lower than this.

Psychologist Medicare Rebate

Medicare rebates are not automatic, please read through this page to learn how to receive your rebate.

To be eligible for Medicare Rebates, you first need a valid Referral and MHCP. Your Referral Letter should be addressed to : Humanique, 2/10 Mills Street Bentley WA 6102 or directly to one of our psychologists.

How to get your Psychologist Medicare Rebate

To get your medicare rebate for visiting a psychologist, you first have to book an appointment with your GP and let them know you need a mental health care plan (MHCP). Your GP will then work with you to develop this MHCP at your appointment and write you a referral to a psychologist if necessary. Currently, Medicare allows you to see any psychologist you wish with a MHCP even if it is not the one you have been referred to. Please speak with your doctor or give us a call to find out more.

Before you go about getting your referral, 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.

You need to ensure that we receive a copy of your MHCP and referral letter before or at your first session to be eligible to receive your rebate. Usually, you will bring the document with you but in certain cases, your GP might fax it over to us directly. Medicare will rebate a total of 10 sessions per calendar year. If you have any questions about medicare rebates please give us a call at 1300 059 666 or use our contact form here and we’ll be happy to talk you through.

Our Bulk Billing Psychologist Services

We are deeply committed to providing the best care that we can at the lowest possible fee. In addition to our reduced fees, we sometimes provide bulk billed services for clients in severe financial difficulty. We have limited bulk billing appointments available each month and aim to keep these open only for those who need it the most. 

Using Private Health Insurance

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.

Couples Counselling

Please note that Medicare does not provide a rebate for couples and relationship / marriage counselling. For this service, you will have to pay the full $150 out of pocket at each appointment. We know it can be hard to afford counselling when you are going through a tough time so we have tried to price ourselves as affordably as we can.

Fees for Organisational Services

For our organisational services, including EAP counselling, workshop facilitation, recruitment assessments etc. Please contact us for an accurate quote. Rest assured, our commitment to affordable and accessible mental health services extends to this area as well and we are confident you will be extremely pleased with the value we can provide.

We know the whole rebate thing can be quite confusing. If you have questions, just let us know and we'll be happy to help!
