Over the past few years, Medicare Australia has introduced a number of schemes to make Psychology and Allied Health Counselling Services more accessible to everyday people.
All of the Practitioners at Positive Wellbeing Clinic have a Medicare Provider Number, which allows them to offer Medicare rebates for certain services to eligible clients.
The most common scheme that clients tend to be referred through, and also the most generous in terms of rebates and session numbers, is the Better Access to Mental Health Care Scheme. Eligible clients are entitled to 10 individual and 10 group therapy sessions per calendar year. At our Clinic, these rebates cover 70 to 80 percent of the session cost.
To find out if you are eligible for a Medicare rebate, please read the detailed information on this page about each of the various schemes. Alternatively, you can contact our Clinic to discuss your specific situation or speak to your treating doctor about your options.
