Please note: These fees are well below the current rate recommended by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) for psychological services for individuals is $252 for 30-60 minutes.
In order to receive a Medicare rebate, you must be referred to a psychologist by an appropriate medical practitioner (GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician). The doctor must first make an assessment that you need the services of a psychologist. If you are already seeing a psychologist you can transfer sessions but it is recommended you have the new psychologists name on the referral.
Eligible patients can generally receive up to 10 individual sessions in a calendar year. Your referring doctor will assess your progress after the first six sessions. For more information see: http://www.psychology.org.au/medicare/fact_sheet/#directly

Medicare Information
For clients accessing Medicare through the Better Access to Healthcare scheme you need to be aware of the following:

1. Once 6 sessions have been used I will provide a letter for your G.P. to provide another 'review' (not referral) for a further 4 sessions. You can only have a 'total' of 10 sessions under Medicare per calendar year.

2. If you used up 10 sessions during a calendar year you will need a 'review' (not a referral) from your G.P. for the next year. This will allow a further 10 sessions each calendar year that you require treatment.

If you wish to make your Medicare sessions more cost effective you may choose to book 90 minute sessions when you use them.
