(If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP)
AFFORDABLE CORONAVIRUS FEES
Affordable Coronavirus fees will be introduced shortly.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR MENTAL HEALTH
Anna's fee of $150 per one hour session is very reasonable and way below the Recommended Fees ($254), as set out by the Australian Psychological Society (APS).
If you have a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP, providing you with a $86.15 rebate, then you are only $63.85 out of pocket after full payment.
DISCOUNTED FEES FOR FINANCIAL HARDSHIP
If you are experiencing some financial hardship, then please discuss this with Anna so that she may consider a discounted fee, or possibly even bulk bill you, until you are back on your feet again.
RESCHEDULING AND CANCELLATION FEES
As recommended by the Australian Psychological Society, if you reschedule or cancel an appointment, fees may apply - if the time slot cannot be filled in time:
0 - 24 hours notice - Full fee is charged
24 - 48 hours notice - 50% of fee is charged
48 hours to 7 days notice - 25% of fee may be charged
AIRCON FEE - AFTER HOURS
For any sessions that fall in the time slot after 5:30pm, an aircon fee of $15 per hour is charged on top of the usual session fee. This is because Corporate House (where Anna's office is), switches off the aircon at 5:30pm and then charges Anna $15 per hour thereafter for the whole of Corporate House's aircon to be switched back on.
Thus, the 5:40pm session will have this fee added. It can only be paid privately and is unfortunately not covered by your private health insurance or Medicare.
CARDS ACCEPTED FOR PAYMENT
From session 4 onwards, you will be paying the agreed fee and then be able to receive your rebate.
Anna's online billing system is only able to process two types of cards (VISA / MasterCard).
This includes CREDIT and DEBIT cards.
Unfortunately no cash payments accepted due to security risks.
If you qualify for Bulk Billing, just like at some GPs, Anna will invoice Medicare and be paid by them directly.
