What fees are involved?

individual counselling sessions are approximately 50 minutes in duration and the fee per session is $190 per session.  

Counselling sessions for couples who see Zoe Parry are generally 70 minutes in duration and the fee is $260 per session.

Couples counselling sessions with other psychologists (eg: Anne Galambosi) are 50 minutes duration and the fee is $190 per session.


Please note that accounts must be paid on the day of your session and will be processed either by EFTPOS or electronically using your psychologist's practice management software. Fees are subject to change with 4 weeks notice and any changes will be published on this site.


Appointment Cancellations

We require 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, so we have enough time to offer your appointment to other clients who may wish to attend. If you do not provide 48 hours notice, you will be charged the full session fee. Please note, Medicare rebates do not apply for late cancellation or non-attendance fees.

 

Payment of accounts

Accounts are payable on the day of your session. Accounts which are not paid on the day of your session will revert to the current APS recommended fee. 

 

Private Health Insurance Rebates

Many private health insurance funds provide a rebate for services provided by psychologists. We encourage you to contact your health insurance fund prior to your appointment to find out whether your policy covers services provided by the particular psychologist you are scheduled to meet with. Our psychologists are registered as providers with most private health funds. We do not offer HICAPS electronic claiming at our practice.

 

Can I claim a rebate from Medicare?

In order to obtain a rebate from Medicare, your General Practitioner (GP) must complete a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) with you and refer you to a Psychologist. Your GP will assess whether you are eligible for a MHTP referral and you will generally need to book a longer appointment with your GP to discuss this. If a Mental Health Treatment Plan and referral letter have been completed by your doctor, you will be able to obtain a Medicare rebate of $84.80 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. You must visit your referring doctor after attending 6 psychology sessions, to ascertain whether further sessions are appropriate and if so, you may be referred for a further 4 sessions.

We offer Medicare online claiming, which allows you to claim your Medicare rebate on the spot and Medicare will deposit the funds directly into your bank account (if you have previously registered your banking details with Medicare). Alternatively, you can take your receipt and claim your rebate from Medicare in person or online at home.
