Out of pocket/Gap Fee:

Please contact your health insurer to find out what you can expect to get back after each therapy session.

 

Please be aware that once you have attended your session, your chosen payment method will be charged the total session fee plus transaction fee. Once payment has been made you will receive an invoice from us which can be used to make a health insurance claim.

 

Please be aware...

You may be able to claim private health insurance rebates for telehealth psychology sessions if you are not claiming a Medicare rebate. You are not able to claim both Medicare and private health insurance rebates for the same session. As private health insurance policies and coverage can be different between funds, please speak with your private health insurance fund directly regarding your eligibility and what you can expect to get back.
