An appointment to come and see me does not require a GP referral.
It is a personal decision whether to obtain a GP referral and access the Medicare rebate scheme. If this is your preference, then you will need to obtain a Mental Health Care Plan from either your GP, Psychiatrist or a Paediatrician.
I am Medicare accredited for
clients who are referred by either a GP, Paediatrician, or Psychiatrist on a Mental Health Care Plan. The Medicare rebate of $84.80 is repaid per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year (1st Jan -31st Dec). The Medicare rebate can be claimed on the same day as your session, utilising my Hicaps machine, once full payment of the session has been received.
Health Fund Rebates
You may also be eligible for a refund
from your private Health insurance. Please note that this is dependent on your
level of cover and also is not claimable when under the Medicare rebate
I do have a cancellation policy. I appreciate 48 hours notice if you are not able to attend your appointment. Cancellations within the 48 hour period may incur a cancellation fee. Same day cancellations and non-attendance may incur full session fee. Please note Medicare rebate is not claimable for cancelled sessions.
