Our Fee Structure

psych180 accepts referrals from self-referring individuals, as well as from health professionals such as GPs, Psychiatrists, and Maternal and Child Health Nurses.

Medicare rebates are available for clients referred for treatment by their GP or Psychiatrist. There are different tiers of rebates for Psychologists under Medicare, and this is dependent on treatment received (individual, group or pregnancy support counseling). Clients may be eligible for a maximum of 10 sessions of psychological treatment per calendar year.

Private health insurance rebates also apply. Please check with your health insurer for details.

Fees are paid in full at the end of each session, and a receipt is provided which will allow you to obtain your refund at any Medicare office. Alternatively, rebates can be paid straight into bank accounts if individuals are registered for Medicare Easyclaim.

Please contact us directly to discuss fees for treatment further.

Cancellations

While we understand that there are unforeseen circumstances that may prevent you from attending a scheduled appointment, we would ask that you provide us with as much notice as possible if you intend to miss an appointment.

Cancellations made with less than 24 hours’ notice will attract a cancellation fee of 50% of the normal appointment fee, and this will be charged to your credit card on the day of the scheduled appointment.

We reserve the right to decline booking further appointments in the event that a person has cancelled, or not attended, a number of planned appointments.
