If you have previously used some, or all, of the 10 sessions in a calendar year, with another provider, under a medicare treatment plan, you will need to return to your GP and have a new referral addressed to the psychologist you wish to see at 275 Consulting.
A referral is not required, if you are a full fee paying client. you may be eligible for a rebate from your private health insurance fund if you are a full fee paying client; we can apply for a rebate at your appointment. Please contact your Private Health provider to find out if you are covered and possible rebates as they will vary.
Please note that you cannot claim for a Medicare rebate and private health insurance rebate for the same appointment.
