Medicare rebates apply if your child and/or parent has a Paediatrician or GP referral* to obtain a mental health care plan that entitles you to medicare rebates for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. GP referrals are valid for 12 months and a new referral is required after 12 months or if attending for a new problem. Please contact Helen for further information on medicare rebates and out-of pocket fees for child centred play therapy.
Families or individuals who have reached the Medicare Safety Net threshold will be eligible for additional reimbursement following specialist medical and allied health services.
Mental health care plans can be obtained for your child to use for individual sessions. Plans can also apply for parents seeking parenting support/coaching and skill development.
