MEDICARE

If you do come with a doctor's referral (including a Mental Health Care Plan-MHCP) you will be eligible for the Medicare rebates for up to 10 sessions a year. The Medicare rebate is $84.40 per appointment and higher if your psychologist is a Clinical Psychologist. This rebate can be processed at the completion of your appointment using your Medicare card. To find out more about Medicare rebates go to https://www.psychology.org.au/medicare/fact_sheet/

 

Formal Assessments  are not covered by MHCP, these may be cover by Medicare rebates through the Chronic Disease Management Plan medicare initiative (formerly Enhance Primary Care). These provide for 5 allied health session per year. This rebate is less that the Mental Health Care Plan at $52.95 per session. However, you may access both this and  a MHCP each year. You can request your GP to create such a plan and discuss the allied health service to best use.

 

Alternatively, private health insurance rebates may apply, please check your provider policy for eligibility and amounts. 

 

There is a concession rates available on request for those in financial hardship. Please discuss this in your first session.

 

Clients are encouraged to register for the Medicare Safety Net, which is designed to protect high users of health services from large out of pocket expenses.

 

NDIS funding. If you have approved monies for psychological services or behavior support and are self managed these may also fund your sessions.  If you are self managing your plan you will need to pay for your session on the day, at the rate set by your NDIA. Please provide documentation for this.

The Child Psychologist provides professional assessments of child, adolescent and family concerns. 

Please bring your documentation from previous relevant professionals. For children this includes teacher reports and developmental records or reports from other professionals.

Parents will often attend this appointment without their child for children under the age of 5 years old. For older children where appropriate and possible, both parents/caregivers should attend.  During the initial session the psychologist often meets with the child and parents separately, though only if the child is comfortable with this.

 

COGNITIVE ASSESSMENTS: Pauline Ogilvy provides these for children and teenagers. It involves an initial 90 minute interview, subsequent approximately 90-120 minute assessment and a 60 minute feedback session with a report. The total cost for this including, collating, scoring, interpreting and report writing ranges from $890-$980.00 depending on the duration of the assessment and complexity. The assessment used is the I-Pad version of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-5).
