GP-referred clients - Medicare Rebates
There are a number of Australian Government initiatives under which psychologists are eligible to provide services under Medicare. Dr. Horne, as a registered psychologist with the Victorian Psychologists Registration Board, has a generalist provider number with Medicare and is eligible to deliver up to 10 sessions in a calendar year to individuals and groups, who have a recognised psychological problem.
To receive psychological services under Medicare, a person must be referred by his/her GP or in some instances, by a Psychiatrist.
Currently, the rebate from Medicare is $86.15 per session (leaving a gap of $93.85).
Self-referred clients - Private Health Care Rebates
Self-referred clients who are privately insured (e.g., Medibank Private, MBF, HCF, etc.,) are able to claim Private Health Fund rebates under their "extra"/ancillary cover. The amount of rebate varies from cover to cover and individuals should make their own enquires. Self-referred clients do not need a referral from a GP.
