YOU DO NOT NEED A REFERRAL TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, but if you would like to access a rebate…
The Medicare Rebate of $84.80 (clinic appointments) or $105.30 (mobile appointments and meetings off-site such as at your child’s school) can be claimed if you have a referral from your GP. This will be in the form of a Mental Health Plan . The Medicare rebate makes accessing a Psychologist more affordable. You are entitled to up to 10 sessions per calendar year.
To access the Medicare Rebate, you will need to make an appointment with a GP. It is recommended to book a longer consultation with your GP so they have adequate time to write up the plan with you. Your GP will give you a document called a Mental Health Plan and a letter of referral which entitles you to Medicare Rebates. All you need to do is bring these documents to your first appointment with EveryKid Psychology.
Private Health Funds
If you have extras cover you will be able to claim a rebate from your Private Health Fund. As the rebate varies depending on your level of cover, please call your Health Provider for more information. Most funds provide a 60-80% rebate on fees to psychologists.
