 *SESSION GAP ONLY $45.50

Telehealth and Face to Face Session rates are $170 per 50 minute session.  The session fee  is paid prior to or immediately on conclusion of the session, with the clinical psychology medicare rebate of $124.50 activated automatically and returned to your bank account within 24 – 48 hours.  This leaves an out of pocket gap of $45.50.

*N.B. Medicare rebates are only available for clients with a current medicare card and Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) from a referring GP or Psychiatrist.  Medicare rebates are available for up to 10 sessions per Calendar Year.

EMDR Supervision for Clinicians

Skype and Face to Face sessions are available at flexible and mutually convenient times.  For practitioners in private practice, the supervision fee is the equivalent of fee charged by the supervisee to their clients. Alternatively, practitioners are encouraged to contact Dr Brown, where best efforts will be made to negotiate affordable rates. Australian and New Zealand EMDR trainees are most welcome.  Dr Brown is an EMDRAA accredited EMDR Supervisor and Clinician.

Telehealth & Skype Sessions

As of 1st November 2017, MHCP rebates are available for rural and remote clients. You location must be within regions 4 – 7 on the Modified Monash Model.  You can input your location and review your eligibility  at http://www.doctorconnect.gov.au/internet/otd/publishing.nsf/Content/MMM_locator. Alternatively,  some private health funds will provide a partial rebate.  You are encouraged to check with your private health provider to confirm whether they will fund Skype treatment.

Report Writing Fees

Six and ten session reports under the Better Access initiative (Mental Health Care Plan) are provided to the referring doctor, and are free of charge.  All other reports, including Centrelink documents and treatment plans for Insurance Providers are charged at the pro-rata rate of $241 per hour or part thereof.

Private Health Insurance Rebates

Private health insurance rebates depend on your insurance coverage.  Private health insurance rebates are the responsibility of the client.  Unfortunately, we do not have HICAPS.

Commercial Services

Fees are applied in accordance with the Australian Psychological Society (APS) schedule of recommended fees for Private Practice.  The standard fee for a commercial consultation (46 – 60 mins) is $241.

Payment Options

Payment is accepted by cash or direct debit only.

Cancellations – 24 Hours Notice please.

JMB Psychology is a solo practice.  It is therefore requested that clients unable to attend provide 24 hours advance notice of cancellation. If needing to cancel or postpone, please leave a message via text or phone. Unfortunately missed appointments are not covered by Medicare so if you do not provide 24 hours notice the full session fee is payable. Exceptional circumstances will receive special consideration.

We do our best to support you to remember your appointments.  This includes sending text reminders to your mobile phone 48 hours in advance.  We encourage clients to respond to this text with their intentions regarding attendance.
