Some private health insurance funds provide rebates for psychology and/or counselling services, depending on whether you have an eligible policy and level of cover. Rebates typically cover the majority of service fees, dependent on your policy. Many of our therapists are registered with various private health insurers. For further information, please call us on 1300 735 030.
Life Supports counselling services claimed via private health do not require a GP referral. Please note that you cannot simultaneously claim a Medicare rebate and private health rebate. Same-day appointments are often available if you are claiming a private health rebate for counselling.
All private health providers have different policies and rules of eligibility in order to access rebates, so please check your level of cover and the requirements or qualifications needed for selecting a suitable therapist first. You can discuss your individual circumstances with one of our intake consultants by calling 1300 735 030.
