Fees, Rebates and Booking a Session
Helen Mason & Associates provides affordable counselling assistance with experienced psychologists Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Medicare Rebates are Available for 10 sessions per year
Our counselling sessions are supported by Medicare when you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP or psychiatrist. Our fee is $120 so with a rebate of $84.80 your out-of-pocket expense is $35.20. Our practise has HICAPS so your Medicare payment can be processed at the time of your session with only the out-of-pocket expense payable by yourself. After your first six sessions your need will be reviewed by your referring doctor and you may then gain approval for an additional four sessions.
We believe access to quality psychological care should be available to all people. For this reason we can bulk bill sessions via HICAPS for clients who have a Health Care Card which means you will have no out of pocket expense.
Please note that you may be eligible for a rebate or funding under different referral guidelines (see below).
