Rebates

 

Medicare Rebates:

To access Medicare rebates you will need to see your GP and request a Mental Health Treatment Plan. Medicare offers up to 10 sessions of therapy a year for people diagnosed with ADHD who are under this plan. It will cover standard psychological therapy including skill training. at this stage neurofeedback is not rebatable (hence the discounted price per session). Unfortunately at this stage Medicare does not offer rebates for assessment, but it will cover psychoeducation as part of the feedback session. Medicare will rebate $84.80 per session of therapy. Note: we recommend that you register on the Medicare website for the 'Safety Net", as once you are out of pocket a specific amount, you can then be eligible to receive a rebate of 80% of the cost of each session.

Private Health Insurance:

To find out about your personal level of coverage you will need to contact your private health insurer and ask them about rebates for psychological assessment and psychological therapy. There are such a large range of insurers and levels of coverage, we cannot inform you of your personal situation. Most higher levels of coverage will provide rebates for psychological services.
