Will my sessions be covered by Medicare or Insurance?
It is possible to have 10 sessions per calendar year covered by Medicare, if your GP has issued you with a Medicare mental health care plan. Currently the rebate for a single session under the Medicare plan ranges from $87.45 to $128.50. You will need to speak to your GP about qualifying for this plan and bring it along to your first session. Some private health insurance covers Psychology sessions and it is best to check with your provider.
