PAYING AGENCIES (E.G. WORKCOVER, MOTOR ACCIDENT COMM. ETC)
Accounts will be sent directly to the paying agency, such as Workcover or Motor Accident Commission where there is an approved claim. Please have available the name of your Case Manager and your Claim Number at your first appointment. If the claim is not approved at the time of visit, clients are responsible for payment of the account and will need to discuss reimbursement with their Claims Manager.
Under the Better Access for Mental Health Scheme, up to 10 visits per year receive a Medicare rebate where there is a valid Mental Health Care Plan and GP referral in place. The policy of Fleurieu Psychology Services is to charge a $57.55 (Registered Psychologist) or $56.60 (Clinical Psychologist) Gap for clients who do not hold a concession card. The account, consisting of the rebate added to the Gap, is therefore either $185.00 for Clinical Psychologists or $145.00 for Registered Psychologists. In most cases we process the rebate at time of consultation. Concession Card Holders will be Bulk Billed. (These fees are applicable from 1st July 2020 and are subject to change).
PRIVATELY PAYING CLIENTS
For privately paying clients who are not covered by Medicare, our fee is $185.00 per hour, some of which can usually be claimed back if your have private health cover. It would be wise to confer with your fund prior to your visit.
We appreciate that circumstances may require appointments to be rescheduled. It is important to give us as much notice as possible so that we offer available appointments to other clients who are seeking a consultation. Fleurieu Psychology Services reserves the right to charge clients a $50 non attendance fee where appointments are missed without 24 hours notice. This fee will be the responsibility of the client and not other paying parties.
PLEASE NOTE: We encourage clients to book appointments ahead to be able to attend on a regular basis, however, if any appointment is not attended and we are not advised of the non-attendance in advance, ALL future appointments made will be cancelled.
