No Medicare rebate but possible cover from Health Funds
In order to claim a Medicare rebate, your referring General Practitioner (or other relevant medical practitioner) is required to have lodged a Mental Health Care Plan with Medicare. We will require a copy of this Care Plan prior to, or at the time of your first appointment.
If you are looking to make a claim through your Private Health Insurance, you do not need a Mental Health Care Plan or a referral from your doctor. You will need to check with your health insurance provider to see what rebates they offer, and we will supply you with an invoice/receipt which you can lodge with them.
Financial Assistance may be possible through the generosity of the Blue Butterfly Foundation for Trauma and Abuse Ltd.
Clients arriving late for their session will be required to pay their full fee regardless of the length of their consultation. Sessions cannot run over time for late arrivals.
