Rebates and payments to see our psychologist

 

Bloomfield Psychology provides a variety of services face to face or online from individual counselling, coaching, supervision to group training programs.

You can refer yourself to our service. You can also obtain a referral from your GP with a Mental Health Care Plan to access Medicare rebates.  You can claim from Private Health Insurance, Workers' Compensation Insurance or Third Party Insurance or via an Employee Assistance Program.

Personal Counseling, Coaching, Mentoring - No Referral required

You can access our services directly without a referral if you feel that talking to a psychologist would help in your current situation in your personal life or at work.

Mental Health Treatment Plans (Medicare rebates)-Face to face individual sessions

If you are currently dealing with a problem that you believe we can help, discuss it with your GP, Psychiatrist or Pediatrician. Ask your Doctor if he/she will do an initial Mental Health Care Plan assessment to establish if it is appropriate for you to be referred to a psychologist. With a Mental Health Care Plan, you are eligible for a Medicare rebate ($124.65) for 1-hour clinical psychological counselling session for up to 10 sessions in the following 12 months of being issued. Under exceptional circumstances, you may be eligible for 16 sessions per year.
