All consultations are $130 for 60 minutes or $195 for 90 minutes. Payment is required at the end of the session by cash or EFTPOS. You may be able to access a rebate for services if you are a member of a Private Health Care Fund or have been issued with a current Mental Health Care Plan from your treating General Practitioner (GP) / Doctor or Psychiatrist.
To be eligible for a Medicare rebate / reimbursement of $74.80 (or an ‘out of pocket’ expense of $55.20 per 60 minute appointment), you will need to be issued with a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) by your treating GP or Doctor. Your GP will assess your eligibility prior to your appointment at Fix It Counselling. If you’re eligible, your GP will prepare a MHCP referral for you to access rebates for up to six sessions in a calendar year (January to December). Upon completion of the six sessions, you can also return to your GP and have your MHCP reviewed and receive a further additional four to six sessions. All up you may be eligible for ten sessions, plus GP reviewed extensions, per calendar year.
