are telehealth appointments available?
Yes. I am able to see any clients via videoconference (Skype, Zoom etc) and some people may be eligible for a Medicare Rebate. Please refer to the Health Dept flyer for new COVID-19 Medicare telehealth items and the eligibility requirements. If you do not meet the criteria for a Medicare Rebate, you are still able to make a videoconference appointment with me. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss this option further.
WHAT WILL A SESSION COST?
Sessions at Insideout Psychology are generally 50 minutes in length and charged at $210 per session.
Having a Mental Health Care Plan from your Doctor means that you will receive a Medicare Rebate for 10 sessions per year of $124.50 per session.
CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE A PSYCHOLOGIST WITHOUT A REFERRAL?
Yes. You do not need a referral to see a psychologist. Anybody can self-refer and simply just needs to make contact. However, a referral is required from your General Practitioner if you need to claim a rebate through Medicare.
HOW DO I CLAIM A MEDICARE REBATE FOR MY PSYCHOLOGY SESSIONS?
Insideout Psychology is registered with Medicare and the Medicare Benefits Scheme provides a substantial rebate for each session if you have a Mental Health Plan of $124.50 per session.
We process your Medicare Care Rebate online simply and easily at your appointment.
WHAT ABOUT WORKERS COMPENSATION AND MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT INSURANCE CLAIMS?
When making your appointment with us, please let us know that you have an insurance claim. When the insurer has accepted liability and pre-approval for the sessions has been accepted, we will bill the insurer directly.
CAN I USE MY PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE?
Depending on your level of Private Health Cover you may be eligible for a rebate through your health fund. Please check with your health fund first.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. This will allow us to give valuable appointment times to other clients. Please be aware that a cancellation fee of 50% of the session fee is payable where less than 24 hours notice is given for cancellation.
