Fees & Rebates
How it all works
Clinical Psychology on the Sunshine Coast
If you are experiencing mental health concerns and are in need of support, it is important that you seek assistance from your doctor so they can assess you and refer you to appropriate support services. If your GP has assessed you and believes you would benefit from psychological support, they will typically provide you with something called a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). This plan means you may be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate for up to 10 individual psychology sessions per calendar year. Concession rates are available for valid concession card holders.
Your doctor will either send us your referral and care plan directly or they may provide you with the plan to bring along to your first session with your psychologist. It is important that this plan is in place for you to receive a Medicare rebate. Please bring your Medicare card along with you so we can provide you with your rebate on the spot.
Alternatively, if you have private health insurance, you may be eligible to claim a rebate with your private health insurer. This will depend on your level of cover. Please discuss this with your private health insurance.
Of course, if you do not have a care plan or private health insurance, you are welcome to make an appointment with us however the session fee is required to be paid in full by you at the time of your appointment.
Our psychologists are also able to provide psychology services to clients under WorkCover QLD.
