COUNSELLING & THERAPY SERVICES
Fees & Rebates
At Perinatal Wellness we aim to provide a professional service at affordable prices. Our fees are competitive and below industry recommendation in the hopes this will enable a greater number of people to access services that may benefit them.
We are registered with both Medicare and Private Health Funds so you may find you are out of pocket much less than expected. We are also able to offer a discounted rate to those with a valid Health Care Card.
How do I make an appointment?
There are a number of ways you can access our services.
- You may call and make an appointment on 0410 630 131 or use our contact form.
- If claiming a Medicare rebate you will first need to see your GP. If you are pregnant or have been pregnant in the past 12 months you may be eligible for ‘Non-Directive Pregnancy Counselling’. Alternatively, your GP may feel you better fit the criteria for a referral under a ‘Mental Health Care Plan’ which provides a higher rebate and a greater number of sessions. If assessed as eligible your GP will provide you with a referral which you will need to bring to our first appointment.
- If claiming on your health insurance no referral is necessary so please contact us direct.
Fees and Rebates
Office based sessions are $165 for 50 minutes.
If you are eligible for a medicare rebate you can claim $84.80 for psychological services, $106.55 for home visiting psychological services or $62.60 for pregnancy counselling. If you have reached the Medicare threshold for the year, you may find yourself out of pocket as little as $16.
Alternatively, most health funds will provide a refund for part of the fee. Please contact your health fund to find out your level of refund and annual limit.
