Available Rebates and Fee Assistance

MHCP (Medicare)

Under the government’s ‘Better Access to Mental Health Care’ (MHCP) initiative, limited Medicare rebates are available for treatment by registered psychologists. Individuals can get rebates for up to ten counselling sessions per calendar year. The rebate is $96.20 per session (see Medicare fact sheet found on the Medicare website for further explanation). 

To receive Medicare rebates, you will need a referral from your GP (or a psychiatrist or paediatrician). They will complete a comprehensive mental health assessment form and give you a referral to a psychologist. Your psychologist must have a copy of this referral to be able to process your rebate.

Please note Reflections Psychology does not offer Bulk-billed sessions.

Private Health Insurance

We are registered with the major private health insurance organisations. If you wish to claim on your private health insurance, we can provide you with a receipt allowing you to claim your rebate from your insurer at a later date.

NDIS, Work Cover, Victims Assist, and DVA

Reflections Psychology are providers for all of these services. Please note standard fees may not apply.

Appointment Cancellations

If you need to cancel a session, please phone our service 24 hours before your appointment.  If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will need to pay the full fee of the session.

Of course, we understand that genuine emergencies happen, so if you have a genuine emergency which you could not foresee (e.g. car accident, rushed to hospital) the fee may be waived at the psychologist’s discretion. If you forget your appointment, get called into work, confuse your appointment times etc. you will be responsible for paying the fee for the missed session.

We ask that in choosing to be a client of our service you commit to contacting us with 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel an appointment, or you accept responsibility for payment of the cancellation fee.

FAQ

When do I pay?

For Self-Managed NDIS clients, or privately funded/Medicare clients: When you book in your first appointment, we’ll ask for a credit card number. The details will be stored on a secure server, and we will charge your card at the end of the session and claim your rebate straightaway.

For Plan Managed NDIS clients: You will need to provide us with your plan manager’s details so that we can send the invoice to them.

How do I get my rebate?

Most of the time we can process Medicare rebates straightaway. To do this, you will need to provide us with your referral to your psychologist along with your Medicare card/number and a credit/debit card. For more information on how to do this, visit the Medicare page on the Department of Human Services website, or visit your closest Medicare office.

How do you decide how much to charge per session?

We have set our fee structure to balance our costs and not making the cost of therapy prohibitive.  This means our fees are well below those recommended by the Australian Psychological Society (APS). For example, APS recommended fee for a 45-60 min session is $300.00.
