Fees and Rebates

Fees

The current fee is $200 per session, and sessions run for approximately 50 minutes. 

Fees are payable on the day of your appointment by debit or credit card. We are able to process any applicable Medicare rebates on the day if you have a valid Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP.

Rebates

You do not need a referral from your doctor to see a clinical psychologist.

 

However, under the Better Access Scheme, Medicare rebates are available if you are referred by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. Your treating practitioner may decide that you are eligible and prepare a Mental Health Care Plan for you. Please bring this with you to your first session. The current rebate for a clinical psychology session is $126.50. Further information on Medicare rebates can be found here.

 

Some private health funds offer rebates for psychological services. Please check with your health fund to see whether you are eligible for a rebate.

 

A limited number of bulk-billed appointments are available to those with a valid Health Care Card. If you are currently experiencing financial hardship, please get in touch to discuss your needs. 

Workers' Compensation and DVA

Larissa is experienced in providing treatment under the Workers Compensation scheme in Western Australia, and is accredited to provide therapy to DVA card-holders with the Department of Human Services. 

If you have a claim under either of these schemes, you may be eligible to receive treatment with low, or no out-of-pocket expenses. Please get in touch to discuss your needs further.
