Referrals

You do not need a referral from a doctor to arrange an appointment. Contact us to discuss your needs and make an appointment.

However, you do need a referral to be eligible for a Medicare rebate.

Medicare

Medicare may pay a rebate for a range of psychology services for you or your children.

To qualify for the rebate, you must have a referral from your General Practitioner, psychiatrist or paediatrician. You should book a longer session with your GP to enable time for an assessment. Medicare will normally pay a rebate for up to ten sessions per calendar year, with a review after the first six sessions.

Click here for a Medicare fact sheet with more information about what is covered and other details of the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. We encourage you to discuss this with your doctor.

A small gap payment is normally required. Patients with a Health Care Concession Card or financial difficulties may be eligible to be bulk billed. Please discuss this with reception when making your first appointment.

Private health funds

Many private health funds provide rebates for psychological services. The conditions and level of rebate vary considerably between funds and plans. We encourage you to check with your fund before your first visit.

You can not claim both a Medicare rebate and one from your private health insurance, and private health funds are not allowed to offer gap cover.

Other sources of cover

If you are have been injured in the workplace or in a traffic accident, the cost of your care may be covered by schemes such as workers compensation or compulsory third party motor insurance. It is essential that you gain approval from the scheme before your first visit. Special provisions may also apply to veteran and victims of crime.

Fees

Salamanca Psychology uses a sliding fee schedule that recognises the nature and source of the consultation or referral, the amount of time that is involved and other professional factors.

A small gap payment is normally required in addition to any Medicare or private health fund rebate. This does not apply to patients who are bulk billed.

Unless otherwise negotiated, government agencies, other organisations and psycho-legal referrals are charged at the professional rates recommended by the Australian Psychological Society.
