Rebates

Medicare rebates are available with a Mental Health Care Plan from a GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician. If you are referred by one of these specialists you may be eligible to receive a rebate for 10 counselling sessions per Calendar Year through the Better Access to Mental health Care Initiative. We have on the spot Medicare claiming so we are able to pay Medicare rebates straight back into your bank after the consultation.
