Medicare Funded Psychology and Counselling Services

    At Casey Cardinia Psychology, our team members are all registered, so you can claim a Medicare rebate for your psychology and counselling sessions. To claim these rebates, you must have a referral, in the form of a Mental Health Care Plan, from a GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. If you are eligible, you can receive 10 individual counselling sessions in a calendar year. Medicare-funded sessions require a co-contribution from clients.

    Accessing counselling and psychology through Medicare will enable you to access the support you need, that is best tailored for you.
