FEES & REBATES
Fees - Counselling
Fees for therapy services are specific to each practitioner. The fees for 50 minute individual counselling sessions range from $220 to $260 on weekdays, and from $250 to $290 on Saturdays. Additional fees apply for couples therapy sessions.
Fees for insurance related services (eg: NDIS, Workcover, ICWA) are based on the relevant price/fee guide. Please contact our office on 9456 0411 or click here to contact us by email for more information.
Fees - Neuropsychological Assessments
The fee for our Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnostic assessment for adolescents and adults $2400 which includes a detailed diagnostic report.
The fee for diagnostic assessment of attentional issues (eg: ADHD) or learning disorders (eg: dyslexia, dyscalculia) is $1700 and includes a comprehensive written report and parent feedback session. If additional testing or consultation is required, additional fees will apply.
Please note, payment of the full assessment fee is required before the assessment.
Fees - Insurance & Third Party Funded Services
Our fees for services funded by insurers or other third parties are based on the recommended fee schedule for the specific referral type (eg:WorkCover WA, NDIS). Please advise our receptionist on 9456 0411 if you would like to see one of our psychologists under worker's compensation or other insurance funding.
We require 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, which allows us enough time to offer your appointment to other clients.
Therapy sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will attract a late notice fee equivalent to the full session fee, and sessions cancelled with 24-48 hours notice will attract a late notice fee of 50% of the full session fee. If we are able to fill the appointment with another booking, you will not be charged.
Please note, if you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, we reserve the right to reschedule the appointment (rather than offer a shorter session) if we believe rescheduling will allow us to provide better care or quality of service. If for some reason, your practitioner is running late for your appointment, you are welcome to reschedule if you prefer.
Payment of Accounts
Fees must be paid in full on the day of your session and we have EFTPOS facilities for your convenience. Our fees are subject to change with 4 weeks notice and any changes will be published on this site.
Please note, if your invoice is outstanding for more than 48 hours, we may cancel your future appointments until payment is received.
Private Health Insurance Rebates
Many private health insurance funds provide a rebate for services provided by psychologists. We encourage you to contact your health insurance fund prior to your appointment to find out whether your policy covers services provided by your chosen psychologist. We have HICAPS which allows you to lodge your private health insurance claim at our office.
Can I claim a rebate from Medicare?
Each of our practitioners are registered Medicare providers and clients with an eligible Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) referral from their GP or a referral letter from their psychiatrist can claim a rebate for a maximum of 20 sessions per calendar year. Medicare rebates for psychology services are provided in sets of sessions and a new GP referral letter is required for each set of sessions. Rebates apply for eligible sessions attended in-person or via telehealth (online or by phone).
Our reception team can assist with processing your Medicare claim online for invoices paid on the day of the session by EFTPOS or via secure online credit card payment.
Please note that Medicare rebates are not available for:
couples counselling sessions, even if one or both partners have a Mental Health Treatment Plan
Psycho-educational, ADHD and learning assessments
Adult autism assessments
Sessions held with parents regarding their child's therapy if the child is not present at the session, regardless of whether the child and/or parent has a MHTP in place.
