Anna's Fees & Rebates

NEW 2022 CLIENTS

All sessions are 50 mins long.

As a Full Member of the APS (Aust. Psychological Soc.) since 2004, it is recommended that Anna charges $280 per 50mins, however... Anna feels that in these COVID times, her discounted fee below, is more reasonable.

ANNA's FULL FEE $200

Medicate Rebate = $89.65
Out of Pocket = $110.35

* IF you have a Mental Health Treatment Plan from your GP, you will receive the $89.65 rebate.

* Private Clients do NOT need a GP referral, but no Medicare rebate will be available - your Health Insurance my have a rebate though.

* Unfortunately no concession fees available.

GP MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT PLANS

If you have a Mental Health Treatment Plan (a type of referral) from your GP, you are provided with an $89.65 rebate (from Medicare), after full payment ($200) at the end of each session.

Medicare rebates are requested from Anna's computer, so no standing in line at Medicare to collect your rebate.

 

Initially Anna will be seeing you weekly for 4 to 5 sessions. There-after, ​sessions become less frequent as you learn to manage you mental health better.

APPOINTMENT CHANGES:
RESCHEDULING
CANCELLING AND
'NO SHOWS'

Despite other commitments and emergencies, Anna has set aside 50 minutes of her time to support you and therefore is unable to provide another client with much needed help if you make late changes to your appointments.

Therefore, the following fees and notice periods apply to late cancelled, rescheduled or missed sessions... if the appointment cannot be filled in time.

Early changes:

$0:         3+ business days' notice

Late changes:
$50:       2 business days' notice 
$100:     1 business days' notice
$200:     Same day notice

AFTER HOURS FEES

Because Anna no longer works after 5.30pm,
there are no more after hours fees.

CARDS ACCEPTED FOR PAYMENT

Anna's online billing system is able to process two brands of cards (VISA / MasterCard).
 

This includes only CREDIT and DEBIT cards. ​

Please bring your physical card (with CCV number) as no EFTPOS machine is involved and Anna has to manually enter your card details into her system for processing (only at the first sessions - then your encrypted details are securely stored for any following session payments).


Unfortunately, no cash payments are accepted due to security risks.

After full payment at the end of the session,  Anna will process your rebate from her billing system, which is integrated with Medicare.

 

You do not have to go and stand in a queue at Medicare to be rebated.

You will be able to receive your rebate from Medicare within 24-48hrs into your nominated account.

After many years of bulk billing, Anna no longer offers this form of payment.

However... returning clients (from before 2022) who were bulk billed in the past, are welcome to contact Anna for a personal chat about possible reduced fees on re-entering therapy.

No harm in asking.
