There is often some confusion regarding the information a General Practitioner may provide regarding Medicare rebates for psychologists. Although a GP may inform you that you are eligible for up to 20 Medicare sessions in a calendar year this refers to Medicare rebates, it does not mean that a psychological session is “free”. Like doctors, psychologists set their own fees. Bulk Billing is sometimes available (this is optional for a psychologist) for those who hold concession cards.
We believe in transparency in our fee structure. There are no contracts for standard consultations and you will decide with your psychologist the frequency of visits.
Fee-paying clients who have an appropriate referral from a GP will receive $87.45 as a Medicare rebate
