Free Minds Clinical Psychologists charge $290 for your initial consultation and subsequent sessions are charged at $240. Sessions last 45 to 55 minutes.
The fee is payable at the end of session via Visa, MasterCard, EFTPOS or cash.
No referral is required unless you wish to claim on Medicare.
Treatment by a Clinical Psychologist is now subsidised through Medicare’s Better Access Scheme. You may be eligible to receive a rebate of $129.55 per session for 10 sessions in a calendar year through this scheme with a further extension of 10 sessions due to COVID pandemic.
If you would like to access this rebate you will need to see your GP, who may provide you with a Mental Health Care Plan (item 2710). Be aware that you might need to book an appointment with your medical provider in advance, as you are likely to need a slightly longer appointment.
Private Health Fund
Most private health funds offer rebates for psychological therapy, though they differ from fund to fund. If you are unsure whether you are covered it’s best to check with your health fund.
Please note that it is not possible to claim both rebates for Medicare and your health fund. You will need to choose which rebate you would like to claim.
