I require payment of your session ($165,-) on the day of your appointment. Your Medicare rebate will be automatically processed as soon as your appointment finishes and you will receive the rebate in our account within 24 hours.

Private Health insurance
Accredited Mental Health Social Workers are acknowledged by Teacher's Health Fund & Bupa for rebates for therapy sessions.
ReferralsFor all Medicare funded programs, you will need to talk to your GP and request a Mental Health Treatment Plan and a referral letter. Most GP's will require you to make a long appointment to obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan. Please ensure that your GP writes a referral letter addressed to me, otherwise I am unable to process the rebate. You don't need a referral when you are privately funded. Please contact me to find out more about the other options of funding your sessions.
