Rebate Eligibility

Medicare rebates are available; however, a GP referral is necessary. To obtain a Medicare rebate you will need to obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan and referral from your GP. Otherwise, if you have a treating psychiatrist, she or he can provide a general referral letter. If you haven’t yet obtained a referral, we may be able to recommend General Practitioners in the local area whom we already work with.

For information about Medicare rebates, please see our FAQ section, particularly ‘Can I receive a Medicare rebate for seeing a psychologist?’ and ‘Are there Medicare rebates for seeing a psychologist via telehealth sessions? Or private health rebates? – COVID-19’.

If you do not wish to obtain a referral, you can check with your private health insurance fund to see if counselling is covered. Otherwise, you will need to pay the full fee.
