Private Health Fund Rebates

If you are insured with a Private Health Fund and have Extras, you may be eligible for rebates for psychological therapy. You do not require a Mental Health Care Plan or referral to attend and claim privately.

To determine your eligibility, and rebate, call your fund. They will tell you the specific amounts to which you are entitled. Bring your health fund card with you and we can process your rebate with our HiCaps machine on the spot. 

You cannot obtain a health fund rebate AND a Medicare rebate for the same session.

Payment Methods

At your appointment you can pay via cash, credit or debit card. Then, if you are eligible for a Medicare rebate we can process the claim so that it is deposited directly  into your account. Private Rebates can also be claimed such that only the gap fee will be charged.
