Medicare

We are a fee for service practice. We do not provide medicare "bulk billed services". We do provide Medicare rebated services as per the rules for  psychological treatment by registered psychologists under the Australian Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. 

 

If you have a referral from your GP under a Mental Health Care Plan you will be able to make a Medicare rebate claim that will subsidise the cost of the session.

 

Medicare will reimburse $93.35 per session with a registered psychologist for up to 10 sessions within a calendar year. The 10 additional sessions available due to COVID was discontinued as of 1st Jan 2024 by the federal Govt.   You need to visit your GP to discuss referral under a Better Access Mental Health Care Plan. 

Tele-Health and Rural Outreach

Can’t always make it to Tamworth? No problem. 

No matter where you are, our clinicians are available to provide treatment and professional supervision services online or by phone. We have been providing telehealth services to our communities for over six years and find it a great way to connect with clients who find it difficult to attend in-person, whether that be because of geographical or time constraints.

We also provide both in person and telehealth services to rural outreach communities. Our team members live within the rural locations they serve, meaning they have a deep understanding of the pressures facing rural communities.

All telehealth sessions are conducted using the secure telehealth platform.

Employee Assistance Programs

Many workplaces offer employee assistance programs which you can self-refer to for support around any matter you may need to address. This can be of a work, personal, or relationship matter and is funded by your employer.

Calm Consultants has partnerships with many EAP providers. Chat with your Human Resources or Manager for information on how to access this service.

Private Health Insurance

Many private health insurers offer rebates and benefits for psychology services. 

 

If your insurer covers you under ‘extras cover’ you may be entitled to a rebate. If you do have private health insurance you will need to check with your insurer what type of cover you have and what benefits and rebates you are eligible for.


For further information, please speak with your GP or private health insurer.
