At Creating Connection, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to access affordable, high-quality therapy.
As a Medicare Provider, we able to offer rebates under the Better Access scheme, which entitles eligible clients to a rebate of $84.80 if they have a current Mental Health Care Plan. Clients can either claim the Medicare rebate electronically on the spot using MediClear, or take their invoice to Medicare to claim the rebate themselves. In cases of extreme financial hardship, we also offer a Bulk Billing service for eligible clients under Medicare. Please contact Creating Connection for further information, or click here for a fact sheet on using Medicare services.
The standard fee for a 50-60 minute consultation with a Psychologist at Creating Connection is $150.00. If you have a Care Plan, this means you only pay a gap of $65.20.
Where appropriate, Care Plans can also be used to access couples therapy services. Full payment is required at the time of your appointment and can be made with EFTPOS, Credit Card or cash.
Private Health rebates are also available, provided you have appropriate ancillary cover. As various Private Health Insurers rebate different amounts for psychology, please call your Provider if you would like to know the exact rebate amount you will receive for consultations.
Please note, the Australian Psychological Society’s recommended fee is $222.00
