The standard fees are as follows:
Provisional Psychologist $80/session
Clinical Psychologist $190 - $220/session
If a Mental Health Care Plan is in place Medicare will rebate up to 10 sessions in a calendar year. The out of pocket expense is between $65 - $95.
Accessing the Medicare Rebate
You may be eligible for a Medicare rebate per consultation. To receive this rebate you must be referred by a General Practitioner under Mental Health Care Plan (GP Item 2710), or referred directly from a Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician.
Private Health Fund
Many private health funds offer rebates for psychological services. Please check rebate details with your health fund. You cannot claim from both Medicare and Private Health Fund for the same consultation session.
