Referrals and Fees


You do not require any type of referral to see us.  Referrals are only required if you wish to claim rebates from Medicare.  


Medicare Rebates


  • Mental Health Care Plan - You may be eligible to claim a Medicare rebate if you or your child are experiencing mental health difficulties. To be eligible for Medicare rebates, you require a referral from your GP or psychiatrist. To obtain this you will need to make a long appointment with your GP who will assess your current mental health concerns. If eligible, your GP will then complete a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) for you to access psychology appointments.


  • GP Management Plan - You can also attend appointments under as part of a GP Management Plan (GPMP). If you have a chronic medical condition, they may be eligible for services under a GP Management Plan (GPMP). Chronic medical conditions are those that have been, or are likely to be, present for at least 6 months. This program enables clients to receive a Medicare rebate for up to 5 sessions over a calendar year.


  • Helping Children with Autism Program - A referral is needed from a Paediatrician or Psychiatrist to access Medicare rebates. Under the Helping Children with Autism program, a child can be referred by a consultant paediatrician or psychiatrist for the following allied health services for up to four diagnostic/assessment services to assist the referring practitioner with diagnosis or to contribute to a child’s treatment and management plan for a child under 13 years of age and/or up to twenty treatment services for a child under 15 years of age, providing a treatment and management plan is in place before their 13th birthday.

If you have a Mental Health Care Plan; GP Management Plan or have been referred under the helping with Autism Program, please bring this to your first session.



National Disability Insurance Scheme

NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. If you have self-managed or privately managed NDIS funding with psychology on your plan we can provide services to you without a referral.



Private Health

Many private health insurance policies with ‘extras’ cover provide a rebate for clinical psychology services where the Medicare rebate is not being claimed.  (, but please check the requirements and rebates with your health fund). 


No referral required, but each insurance company is different, and rebates depend on the your level of cover. It is best to check with your insurer directly as to wat rebate you might receive. 



Initial consultation fees to see a Clinical Psychologist are $260 and subsequent consultations are $240. If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP you will receive a rebate of $136.35 per session.
