 *SESSION GAP $162.95

In accordance with the Australian Psychological Society recommendations, the session rate is $300 per 60 minute consultation. Session fees are payable   on the day of the session. Eligible clients can receive a Medicare rebate of $137.05 for up to ten sessions per calendar year.  This leaves an out of pocket gap of $162.95.  Please note, the clinical rebate is significantly higher than rebates provided for General Psychologists.

Victims Assist

Due to challenges associated with working with the Victims Assistance organisation, clients are responsible for payment for service, and encouraged to seek reimbursement from Victims Assist individually.  Receipts and proof of payment will be provided.

DVA & Workcover – Not provided.

Outreach and Travel.

Outreach appointments will be considered on an individual basis.  Outreach appointments are charged in accordance with the APS Schedule of Travel Fees I.e. $51 per 15 minutes.

Cancellations – 24 Hours Notice Required.

Missed appointments are not covered by Medicare so if you do not provide 24 hours notice the full session fee is payable. In order to ensure continuity of care for existing clients, client numbers are capped and limited.  It is therefore required that clients provide 24 hours advance notice of cancellation. If needing to cancel or postpone, please leave a message via text or phone.  Clients who do not attend or fail to pay their non-attendance/cancellation fee in advance will have subsequent sessions cancelled.

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.

Report Writing Fees

Six and ten session reports under the Better Access initiative (Mental Health Care Plan) are provided to the referring doctor, free of charge.  All other reports, including Centrelink documents, treatment plans for Insurance Providers & Victims Assist applications are charged at the pro-rata rate of $300 + GST 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 $300.

Payment Options

Clients provide their credit card details during intake.  Immediately following their session, an invoice is forwarded to the client for same day payment.  Upon notification of payment, the Medicare rebate will be processed (for eligible clients) and returned to the client’s bank account within 24-48 hours.  N.B.  JMB Psychology is not responsible for the currency of the clients’ medicare eligibility status.  Unpaid accounts will be processed via credit card.
