Fees and Medicare Rebate At Mornington Peninsula Psychology our appointments are 50 minutes in duration though please allow one hour for your visit.

All consultation fees are payable at the time of your appointment. Should the appointment not be paid for at the time of consultation a $20 administration fee will be added to your account.

Medicare:

With a Mental Health Care Plan Medicare rebates are available. Please ask our reception staff the rebate you are entitled to when booking your initial appointment.

 

A Medicare referral from your Doctor entitles you to claim the Medicare rebate for up to 10 sessions of psychological treatment within 12 months from the date of your referral. You must obtain this referral from your Doctor before your initial consultation with your psychologist.

After six sessions you must be reviewed by your Doctor and provide your psychologist with a second referral to access the rebate for the further four sessions.

Private Health:

Please check with your private health provider if you are covered for psychology. We can issue you with a receipt to take to your health fund after your consultation for claiming purposes. Please note you can claim through either Medicare or Private Health not both.

WorkCover & TAC

Our psychologists are registered providers for TAC and Workcover, all accounts are to be paid in full at the time of the appointment. You, the client, are responsible for your account and if payments are covered by an institution such as TAC or VWA, you must recover any monies yourself.
