Affordable access to mental health services for rural Australia
At Rural Health Connect we do not want money to be the reason anyone does not access help. We are lucky to work with some amazing psychologists who feel the same way. However their businesses need to be sustainable so that they can keep doing what they do. To help achieve this, we have created three tiers of pricing options for you select from at sign up, and we ask you to choose the option that best suits your circumstances.
- I need to be bulk billed.This means the sessions are free. This option is available to anyone who needs it.
- Financial difficulty:I can pay a reduced gap fee of $20 per session, understanding that I will pay $108.25 and receive $88.25 back from Medicare (clinical psychologist pay $149.45 and receive back $129.45)
- I can pay the psychologist’s prescribed fee:In this situation you will receive back the Medicare rebate.
You will need a referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan from your GP to receive Medicare support for your sessions.
You will then be able to access up to 20 Medicare subsidised sessions per calendar year.
If you need help or if you still feel that sessions are out of your reach for any reason please contact us on 0427 692 377.
