Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP)

Medicare’s “Better Access” program is a Commonwealth funded initiative that offers rebates for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. To find out if you are eligible, visit your GP who can refer you to see a psychologist for an initial 6 sessions. Eligibility is based on the diagnosis given to you by your GP and includes common problems including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, sleep disturbance and a range of clinical disorders for children, adolescents and adults.

It is a good idea to book a long consultation, as your GP needs to complete a Mental Health Treatment Plan for you to bring along to your initial consultation.

Psychological reports

Fees for reports and services requiring an organisation to be invoiced apply according to the APS Schedule of Recommended Fees + GST

Reports required by parents and schools after a comprehensive cognitive and learning assessment for a child are charged on an hourly basis depending on the time required to prepare the report. Fees are kept to a minimal as much as possible and a preliminary report of the approximate costs will be provided at the commencement of the assessment.

Bulk Billing

Bulk billing is generally not available across the profession, however at Creating Praxis Consulting we endeavour to offer a service that is accessible for all rural communities at a reasonable cost. If you are experiencing financial strain, bulk billing is considered on a case by case basis.

All fees are payable at the time of your appointment and subject to change. (Fees listed current as at 1 August 2019).

For your convenience, we can process your Medicare rebate on the spot utilising the HICAPS system and the rebate is paid directly into your account on the day of service.
