There are a number of ways you can access and fund counselling at NewPsych.
With a referral from your GP or Specialist, you may be eligible to access a Medicare rebate for psychology services. NewPsych is able to process Medicare rebates for those presenting under Mental Health treatment Plans, Eating Disorder Treatment and Management Plans, or Chronic Disease Management Plans. These plans will need to be dated on or before the date of your session with NewPsych to claim, however you do not need to have the plan in place to book your first appointment.
If you are planning to see your doctor for a referral, please let them know when booking that you are looking at a referral for psychology, as they may need to allocate a long appointment for you or see you in person.
You can choose to access sessions privately either at the full fee or claim sessions through your private health insurance. Whilst NewPsych do not have HICAPS at our practice, we provide an emailed or paper receipt to take to your health insurance provider to claim.
Please note, each health fund is different and you will need o contact them to ensure your coverage. If you are planning to claim sessions through your health fund, please let our team know when you make the appointment.
