Psychologist Fees & Rebates
Here at HMM Health we have clinical and generalist psychologists. Please note the fee structure is slightly different, depending on whether your psychologist has general or clinical registration. All of our psychologists are registered Medicare Providers, which means if you are attending under a Mental Health Care Plan, Medicare will refund you a set amount for your session.
The standard fee for a 50-60 minute consultation with a clinical registered psychologist at HMM Health is $170. Medicare will rebate you $126.50 for a 50-60min session with a clinical psychologist (for up to 10 consultations/calendar year). This means that you will be paying a gap of only $43.50 per session (for up to 10 sessions/year).
The standard fee for a 50-60 minute consultation with a general registered psychologist at HMM Health is $135. Medicare will rebate you $86.15 for a 50-60min session with a generalist psychologist (for up to 10 consultations/calendar year). This means that you will be paying a gap of only $48.85 per session.
Please note that if you are referred through a Medicare scheme other than a Mental Health Care Plan, the rebatable amount will differ. We therefore require copies of your referral prior to booking in your first session so that we will be able to provide you with comprehensive information regarding fees. If you wish you may attend as a private client, or through your private health fund. If you attend through a private health fund, you will need to co-ordinate with them in order to determine the rebate for which you will be eligible.
Have a Low Income Centrelink Card?
If you have a low income card such as a Health Care Card or Pension card, you may be eligible to be referred under the Connect to Wellbeing scheme (formally ATAPs). This allows you to access up to 12 fully-funded psychology sessions. See your GP for more information.
Please note that the current fee recommended by the APS for a 50min session with a
psychologist is $251.
