Fees and Rebates
Alison is a registered provider with Medicare Australia and eligible clients are able to obtain a rebate for session costs. Eligibility for a Medicare rebate is assessed by a GP and, when appropriate, a referral is provided and a Mental Health Treatment Plan lodged with Medicare. When these government requirements are met, clients are able to access a Medicare rebate for ten 50 minute sessions in a calendar year, although a review by the GP is required after six sessions. A gap fee is payable, details of which may be obtained by contacting the Blackwattle Clinic on 02 8004 0410. Bulk billing is available for pensioners.
Further sessions may be funded by private health funds if you have the appropriate level of health cover. Please contact your fund directly to find out if you are eligible for a rebate. A rebate cannot be obtained from both Medicare and a private health fund for the same session.
