You Ask - I Answer
How do I make an appointment?
There are several ways to make your appointment:
Call or text 0405 808 911 between 9am - 5pm, Mon-Fri. We are often unable to pick up the phone, however you can leave a message or send a text, which is usually responded to within 24 hours (Mon - Fri).
Use the online booking button to access the Halaxy Appointment book.
Use the Contact Form.
Make a forward booking at the end of your appointment.
How much are session fees?
Session fees are $130 for a 50 minute appointment. If you have a current Medicare Mental Health Care Plan, you will receive a rebate of $87.45, deposited to your Medicare linked bank account at the end of your session.
Clients with DVA or Work Cover referrals have fees fully covered.
How does payment work?
Payment of full fee is due at the end of your session using your credit or debit card. Medicare rebates will be processed at the same time and refunded to your linked bank account.
DVA and Work Cover fees are directly billed to those organisations.
Private Health refunds are available by presenting your paid invoice to your fund provider.
Do I need a referral?
To claim up to 10 sessions on a Medicare rebate, you will need a "Mental Health Care Plan" prepared by your doctor. Please let your doctor know in advance when requesting this, so they can allow the extra time needed.
However, you can also see a Psychologist as a private client, without a referral.
Do you offer Bulk-Billing?
We are not able to offer Bulk Billing at this time. Clients with genuine financial hardship and a Health Care Card can receive a reduced fee to assist.
Do you charge cancellation fees?
A minimum of 24 hours before your appointment time is needed to cancel. You will be charged a $50 fee if the appointment is unable to be re-booked.
To help avoid this, a reminder is sent to your phone 2 days prior to your booking to which you can simply reply Yes or No.
