Fees and Rebates

Referrals

There are many ways people access services at NPCC.  Some people are referred by their GP. If your GP completes a Mental Health Care Plan, this entitles you to receive a Medicare rebate for your appointment with clinicians.

Contact your local GP Practice to schedule an appointment for a double consultation with the doctor for a Mental Health Care Plan assessment. If you feel unable to ask your GP, call us to see how we can help.

NPCC also offers NDIS assessments. Please note that NPCC only accept self managed funds for therapy.

Alternatively, you can choose to see a Clinician without a referral and use your Private Health insurance towards the cost of your session if you are eligible. As Private Health funds all vary you will need to clarify with your fund your eligibility for rebates.

Fees and Rebates

Medicare provides rebates for psychology consultations. The cost of your appointment is usually higher than the medicare rebate and can range between $135 to $275 depending on your therapist. The payment arrangements vary depending on the choice of practitioner. A list of current fees will be provided at the time of booking your initial appointment. All fees are to be paid in full on the day of your appointment.

Cancellations
