Medicare Rebate

Medicare now subsidises psychological sessions; so you can talk to a Clinical Psychologist.

Psychological counselling is no longer only for those with private health insurance. Medicare now subsides 6 to 10 psychology sessions per person per calendar year, through a referral from your General Practitioner.

Hendrik is registered with Medicare and provides clinical psychology services. You are eligible for Medicare rebates for seeing a Clinical Psychologist, if your GP refer you under GP Mental Health Care Plan (MBS Item numbers 2700, 2701, 2715 or 2717).

Since December 2011, Hendrik bulk bill clients who hold a current pension card or health care card under GPMHCP. Clients who do not fall into the above categories will be charged a private fee. After the Medicare rebate, they will pay the small gap based on their financial circumstances.
