PSYCoaching believes that fees should not be a barrier to getting help. PSYCoaching provides services well below the Australian Psychological Society recommended rates. Furthermore, an immediate Medicare rebate of $84.80 rebate per session (up to 10 sessions per calendar year) is applicable to the rates below for eligible clients with a GP mental health care plan. We can process the rebate for you on the spot.
Standard 50 minute session rate: $130 ($45.20 after rebate).*
Online / Skype Sessions = $130
Your first session and any after-hours sessions will incur a $20 surcharge. Additional charges past on from our merchant facilities to the client include a 2% credit card surcharge and a $2 fee for processing medicare rebates.
Note that bulk billing is available for clients with no source of income in their household, who are in severe financial difficulty. A Centrelink Health Care Card or Pension Card together with a medicare card and GP mental health care plan must be presented.
For skype sessions, Medicare rebates are applicable for clients in Modified Monash Regions 4 or 5 – see http://www.doctorconnect.gov.au/internet/otd/publishing.nsf/content/locator). Such clients may also be eligible for bulk billing as per the above criteria.
The above fees apply only to private or Medicare referrals.
*Clients referred by their GP receive Medicare rebates of $84.80 for individual sessions and around $21 for group sessions. A GP referral for a mental health condition entitles clients to a rebate for 6-10 individual counselling sessions per calendar year, and up to 10 group sessions per calendar year. Discuss with Richard during your first session, or discuss with your GP prior. You must bring your medicare card and a GP referral to your first session to obtain your rebate. The Medicare rebate is for psychological counselling sessions only and is not for life coaching services.
