Since Tracey is a Clinical Psychologist the highest available Medicare rebates are available with a Mental Health Treatment Plan that has been provided by a General Practitioner or Psychiatrist.
To obtain a referral, you need to make an appointment with your GP to complete a Mental Health Treatment Plan. With this referral you will be entitled to a Medicare rebate on 10 counselling sessions and 10 group sessions within a calendar year. You must have this referral prior to your first counselling appointment to be eligible for a Medicare rebate. After paying for your appointment you can take your receipt to Medicare for a rebate or we can process your claim on the spot. The rebate is currently $124.50 per session for individual appointments.
On the Spot Claiming
Our facilities allow us to process your Medicare claim on the spot. Fees are reasonable and discounts are provided for health care card holders.
If you do not have a Mental Health Treatment Plan then you may still be eligible for a rebate from your private health insurer. Check to determine you level of cover.
Tracey is also covered by all the major private insurers. Workcover and Transport Accident Commission Approved.
