Medicare rebates are available for clients with a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) from their GP prior to their appointment. The Medicare rebate to see a Clinical Psychologist is $126.50. Medicare rebates can be offered for in-person sessions, and some telehealth sessions.
Medicare and telehealth:
Up to 10 Medicare session rebates can be claimed per calendar year by GP-referred clients living in rural NSW (regions classified as MMM4-7 - go to this link to determine your region's MMM rating). To participate in telehealth, you are required to have access to a computer, webcam, microphone, speaker, and confidential space for sessions to take place.
Private health fund rebates:
Some private health funds also offer rebates for Clinical Psychology, however, the rebate amount depends on the individual fund and specific criteria set out by them. Please contact your health fund for more information.
Payment of sessions:
Payment will be taken for in-person sessions after the appointment. HICAPS facilities are available, so Medicare claims can be processed straight away.
Payment for telehealth sessions is taken prior to the appointment via bank transfer - Medicare rebates for telehealth must be claimed by the client either online or at a Medicare office.
