Logos Psychology Clinic provides discounted fees to enable a greater number of clients access to psychological services. Fees cover your session time, brief additional phone conversations (15 minutes or less in duration), referral calls, consultations with referring doctors and other health professionals, and general correspondence.
Standard Counselling Session
The cost of a counselling session (usually around 50 minutes in duration) is $140, which is payable at the end of the session by using EFTPOS or cash. Rebates are available through Medicare if referred under the Mental Health Care plan or the Chronic Disease Management plan. You may also be eligible to claim for sessions through your private health insurance fund.
Full-time self-funded students, healthcare card holders and pensioners are charged a consultation cost of $120, which is payable at the end of the session by using EFTPOS or cash.
For your convenience, the clinic offers EFTPOS, Medicare Easyclaim and HICAPS facilities to allow your Medicare or private health insurance rebates to be claimed at the time of payment.
Out of Hours Consultations
Counselling sessions out of office hours are charged at $180 per 50 minute session. Assessment sessions out of office hours are charged at $260 per 50 minute session.
Rebates: Medicare and HICAPS
Rebates are available through Medicare if you are referred under the Mental Health Care plan or the Chronic Disease Management plan. The Medicare rebate is currently set at $84.80. Once you have reached your Medicare safety-net, you may then be eligible to claim 80% of the consultation fee.
Clients wishing to utilise the Medicare rebate scheme must have a Mental Health Care Plan and be referred by a GP or psychiatrist. Alternatively, if you have private health insurance, you may be able to access a rebate through your fund. Please check with your private health insurer to confirm if any rebates are available to you. You are not able to claim both a Medicare rebate and a private health fund rebate for the same session.
To access your Medicare rebate, please bring your valid GP referral to your first appointment.
Third Party Payments
If your fees are being paid by a third party you will be asked to provide details and verification at your first session. If your condition is currently under consideration for compensation, you are responsible for payments until such time as your claim is approved. In most cases, you will then be able to reclaim this amount from the body that is providing compensation.
