If a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) is obtained from a GP, the client will be eligible for Medicare rebate. The client is required to pay the full amount of the session after each session which is $175. The client will then be provided with a receipt which can be used to claim back the Medicare rebate at the time. For further information please check Medicare website.

As a registered psychologist with the Department of Human Services, we are automatically registered with DVA to provide health services to entitled people. Thus, DVA cardholders can receive services through a payment arrangement which means the veteran does not pay for those services.

Fees do not apply to those claim number holders; the sessions are covered by the insurance company.
