Perth Counselling Service is able to reduce fees by referrals being provided by GPs through the Better Access Fee. The Better Access Service provides a rebate for up to 20 sessions in the calendar year.
Below are the per session fees:
Sessions are available on Wednesdays and Saturdays either in Northbridge or High Wycombe (High Wycombe is only available Wednesday mornings).
A standard fee of $150 is charged per one-hour session. The Medicare Rebate is $77.10. This reduces the fee to $72.90 out of pocket. If this cost is prohibitive, a reduced fee can be offered of $120.00 with an out of pocket expense of $42.90.
The fee included preparation time for the session, the session itself and post-session notes.
Report/ letter writing $50 per hour or part thereof
My Medicare provider number is #486748 1H Northbridge and 4867 483F for High Wycombe.
Sessions cancelled without notice will be billed to the client. For appointments cancelled within 24 hours of the session, there will be a $20 fee.
