Fees and Medicare Information

Although ACT Counselling doesn't offer Medicare or other rebates attending our service may NOT work out any more expensive for you. This is because the Medicare rebate does not cover the full costs of a seeing a psychologist. Click HERE for more information.


To be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate you you must first see your GP and ask for a Mental Health Treatment Plan and you will then be referred to a Registered Psychologist for a limited number of sessions (up to 10).
