Home Visit and Offsite Sessions
If you are unable to travel to Little Window, counselling can occur in your home or at an appropriate location closer to you. The fee for this type of session is $240.00 with one of our therapists.
Little Window provides counselling under the Medicare Better Access Program for clients. You may be able to access a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP, enabling you to receive a Medicare rebate of between $75.95 and $86.15 per session, depending on who you see on our team. For an offsite or home visit session, the Medicare rebate is $108.25 with a psychologist.
You and your GP can work together to decide whether you are eligible for this type of plan. The Medicare rebate is available for up to ten sessions per calendar year.
Private Health Cover
Counselling sessions are able to be claimed with most private health care funds if you see one of our psychologists. All you need to do is take your receipt to your health fund and make the relevant claim. This is only applicable if you are not already using the Medicare rebate.
