Cancellation fee is payable for cancellations within 24 hours of session time.
Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP)
General Practitioners (GPs) may prepare a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) to refer their patients for psychological support. MHCPs can be used by patients to access individual sessions. Eligibility is assessed by your GP. A standard plan will allow six therapy sessions, then following a GP review, you may be eligible for another four sessions, to a maximum of twenty claimable sessions per calendar year (calendar years run from 1 January until 31 December). Medicare pays a rebate of $126.80 per session.
Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC)
GPs may prepare an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan for chronic disease management. These referrals can be used to access a number of different therapy services, such as Psychology, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Chiropractic and Paediatric Physiotherapy services. An EPC referral allows an individual to access five therapy sessions over a 12 month period at a reduced rate. Medicare pays a rebate for the cost of these sessions.
Private Health Insurance
You may be eligible to claim rebates through your private health insurance provider. Liz Jowett is registered with all major private health insurance providers. Please speak to your private health insurance fund for information regarding your eligibility.
Additional fees apply for reports, letters and documentation for university, work requirements, and legal purposes.
You are not able to claim a Medicare and a private health rebates for the same consultation.
