Medicare Rebates

A referral from your doctor or psychiatrist is not necessary to see a psychologist. However, if you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP or psychiatrist, you may be entitled to a Medicare Rebate. We can submit your Medicare claim on your behalf. If your bank account details are registered with Medicare, your rebate usually goes into your account within 24 – 48 hours.

A Mental Health Care Plan authorises for up to an initial 6 Medicare rebates. An addition 4 rebates may be authorised by your GP or psychiatrist upon Review. Patients are entitled to claim up to 10 rebates per calendar year.

 

David maintains regular contact with GP's, and other health care providers with your permission, in order to provide you with optimal and comprehensive care.

 

Please note that David Manks Psychology is not a Bulk Billing practice. As such a co-contribution payment is applicable. However, we aim to make psychological services accessible and affordable to the community.

 

Private Health Insurance Rebates

A GP or psychiatrist referral is not required for a private health insurance rebate. Rebate entitlements depend on your particular private health insurance cover – check with your insurer. Unfortunately, we are not able to submit your private health insurance claims on your behalf.
