Rebates

Rebates are available for kinesiology and psychological services from most private health funds. You should check with your health insurer to determine your rebate entitlements.

Rebates are available for psychological services under the Medicare Benefits Scheme on referral from a General Practitioner. Reduced fees are available to clients who have a Centrelink Health Care Card or Centrelink Pension Card.

Medicare Rebates
On 1 November 2006, the Australian Government introduced new Medicare items for psychological treatment by registered psychologists. This service provides considerable assistance to people living with mental heath problems, allowing them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable mental healthcare. Under the new Medicare scheme, all registered psychologists who are endorsed by Medicare Australia can provide treatment for mental health problems.
