Private Health Rebates
You may be able to obtain a rebate through your private health insurance, depending on your level of Extras Cover. Some of the health funds rebate up to 50% of the cost. When contacting your health fund, quote the description “Individual consultation with Family Involvement”.
To determine if your child is eligible for the GP mental health care plan, you will need to make an appointment with your doctor or Paediatrician.

If you have exceeded the Safety Net Threshold you may receive up to 90% of the cost. Note: The Medicare rebate for group sessions is approximately $25.00. Check with Medicare for more details.
