The Australian Psychological Society (APS) recommended hourly fee for psychologists in 2015-2016 is $238. We offer very reasonable rates for individuals and couples, which are below the APS recommended fee. Please contact us for further details on pricing.
Rebates – Medicare
You will be able to claim a proportion of your fees from Medicare if your doctor assesses you to be eligible for psychological services under Medicare, and if you have a referral and a "mental health care plan" from your doctor. If you have a Medicare care plan, Medicare will currently reimburse $84.80 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year.
Rebates – Health Funds
A proportion of your fees may be redeemable from your private health insurance, depending on your health plan. Please liaise directly with your Fund to clarify whether your plan entitles you to a rebate for psychological services.
**Please also note that you are not able to access the Medicare rebate and Health Fund rebate at the same time.
Access to Allied Psychological Services – ATAPS
We are registered with the Northern Sydney Medicare Local as providers of ATAPS services under the general stream for Anxiety and Depression.
