Medicare Bulk Billing and Rebates for Psychology

Bulk Billing means there is no out-of-pocket fee for the service.

Please be mindful that this does not make your session ‘free’; it is paid, on your behalf, via Medicare.

You will need a Mental Health Care Plan written up by a medical professional (GP, Psychiatrist, or Pediatrician) to be able to access bulk billing services through Ballarat Psychologists.

If you have a GP’s referral letter and a Mental Health Care Plan from the GP, we have daytime weekday appointments that are bulk billed to Medicare, so there is no gap fee or cost to you at all.

Simply remember to bring your Medicare Card and Mental Health Care Plan with you to your appointment.

Private Health Insurance

If you are not eligible for a Medicare rebate, you may be able to use your private health insurance to reduce the cost. The rebate available through Private Health will be dependent on your extras cover.

If you have private health insurance that includes psychological counselling as extras cover you may be eligible for a partial rebate. You can also confirm whether psychiatric services are included in your cover.

It is recommended that you contact your insurance provider for further information about your coverage because the amount rebated depends on the insurance company and level of insurance that you have.

Can a psychologist bulk bill?

Yes, they can bulk bill. Some choose to charge a gap, where as others completely bulk bill so there is no cost to you out of pocket. It’s known as a sliding scale and completely up to the psychologist or their practice. They will be reimbursed by Medicare.

After these 10 sessions, Medicare won’t reimburse them anymore, which means that they won’t get paid. This is why for most psychologists, they’ll resume their normal fees. Although sometimes people can get lucky and find someone who will continue to see them free of charge (especially if they have clients with concession cards).
