Standard 50+min consultation - $130

Consultation fees are lower than that recommended by the Australian Psychological Society and in some circumstances Purposeful Psychology can offer consultations at a further reduction. 



Medicare

Medicare rebates are available for Psychological treatment by registered Psychologists under the Australian Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative. This scheme provides considerable assistance to people living with mental health problems, allowing them greater access to Psychologists and providing more affordable mental health care. In order to access rebates under this initiative, you must be referred  by your GP or Psychiatrist who will need to complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan before referring you to a psychologist. 

The current Medicare rebate for a 50+ min consultation with a Registered Psychologist is $84.80. 

For further details about the Better Access initiative please view the following APS Fact Sheet

Private Health Funds

You will need to decide if you will use Medicare or your private health insurance ancillary cover to help pay for the psychological services you receive. You can either access rebates from Medicare or claim, where available, on your insurer's ancillary benefits or extras cover. Please consult your health fund for further information.
