Fees for psychological services may attract a rebate from Medicare. To qualify for the Medicare rebate, a Mental Health Care Plan is required from a General Practitioner or Psychiatrist. Mental Health Care Plans are valid from the day of the referral. Part of the fees may be covered by Private Health Insurance. Please check with your Health Insurer for eligibility.
