About Medicare rebates

Counselling sessions are supported by Medicare when you have a referral (Mental Health Care Plan) from your GP. With the Mental Health Care Plan, you are entitled up to 10 counselling sessions in a calendar year.

To get a referral you will need to make an appointment with your GP to complete a Mental Health Care Plan.

Medicare rebate, example: as our fee for a counselling is $135.00, with a rebate of $84.80 from Medicare, the out of pocket expense is $50.20.
