Payment & Medicare rebate options - Payments must be made upfront at the time of consultation, and may be made by Cash, Cheque, Bank Transfer, EFTPOS, or Credit Card (Visa and MasterCard). All of our staff are registered Medicare
providers, enabling clients to receive clinical rebates for therapy. Please see your GP for a referral and Mental Health Care Plan prior to your initial appointment. The Medicare rebate can be claimed following payment of the session, via an EFTPOS
account, negating the need to visit Medicare. If this is not possible, a receipt will be given which can be taken to Medicare to obtain the allocated rebate. Most Private Health Insurers provide for Clinical Psychology. Check with your provider.
Medicare threshold - All out-of-pocket expenses (or gap fees) incurred count towards your families Medicare Safety Net for the calendar year. The Medicare Safety Net is designed to help by providing greater rebates once you reach your
safety net threshold. Typically, Medicare will refund 80% of all future gap fee payments once your family reach their threshold in a calendar year. For further details, or to register, visit: http://www.medicareaustralia.gov.au
