Rebates on costs
Please check as you or your child may be eligible for funding toward part or full costs of sessions.
Those eligible can be referred by a GP under a Mental Health Care Plan (medicare item) and this covers initially 6 sessions and then if the GP agrees, another 4 sessions can be obtained in a calendar year. Children are also eligible to be referred under this process if they are considered to have symptoms of a mental health condition, anxiety and depression are included under this scheme. Medicare rebates can also claimed for Pregnancy Support Counselling. This is for 3 sessions only and a referral is also needed from a GP.
Please note: FULL PAYMENT is required on the day and then you claim your rebate from medicare (up to 10 a year). NB: Reduced gap for Concession and HCC holders.
