Medicare Rebates

Medicare

Medicare rebates are available through a Doctor referral.

At the time of writing, Medicare will rebate up to $84.80 per session if you are referred by a Doctor. If you are eligible, your Doctor will provide a Mental Health Plan. The initial referral covers 6 sessions. If required your Doctor may refer you for a further block of sessions. Annual limits apply on the number of sessions that can be rebated.
