Perth Psychologist Fees and Medicare Rebates
We're a private practice, without the private billing prices.
Making mental healthcare accessible to all is something that is very important to us. To this end, we charge only a $20 Gap fee after Medicare Rebates.
Bulk Billing Psychologist Perth
In addition to our extremely low gap fees, we also bulk-bill all healthcare card holders.
If you are a healthcare card holder, you will not have to pay any fees for our services beyond the medicare rebate amount. To learn more about medicare rebates and to check if you are eligible, please give us a call at 1300 059 666 or scroll down.
If you do not wish to use Medicare or Private Health rebates and want to see us as a fully private client, our session fees are $105, payable at the end of each session.
Do note that Medicare does not cover Couples Counselling, this is charged at a flat rate of $160 per session.
Do note that if you are not eligible for medicare rebates or you have used up your quota for the year, our full session fees are $105.
Medicare Rebate Psychologist Perth
Medicare provides a rebate of $84.80 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year with a valid referral. This leaves you with a gap fee of approx $20 per session.
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 letter to a psychologist if necessary.
This referral letter MUST be addressed to one of our psychologists if you know who you would like to see OR to Humanique, 256 Stirling Street, Perth WA 6000. 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.
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 and we’ll be happy to talk you through.
Psychologist 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.
Easy and Convenient Claiming
At Humanique, We use HICAPS to process all payments so you can receive your medicare rebate on the spot. If you are using private health cover, you only need to pay the gap fee.
