Fee Structure
$250.00 per clinical psychology appointment $235.00 per clinical neuropsychology appointment

Please note: Clinincal Neuropsychological assessment typically involves 4-5 hours of testing and a comprehensive report (charged per hour of writing) that is dependent on the reason for referral. For a more accurate quote of a neuropsychological assessment please contact us at info@stepforth.org


Medicare
Stepforth Psychology is registered with Medicare. This means that Medicare is willing to fund a portion of your care to enable better access to mental health treatment for clinincal psychology. To be eligible for a Medicare rebate you will require a referral from a general practitioner (GP), for a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan.

If you are eligible to receive a Mental Health Treatment Plan then you are entitled for the rebate of up to 10 sessions in a calendar year (1 January to 31 December). The Mental Health Treatment Plan referral expires 12 months after the date of issue. It is important that the referral is received before your initial consultation, so that you can receive the rebate from Medicare. Once a consultation is completed you will then be able to take your receipt to Medicare to claim the rebate.

Private Health Insurance
Many health care funds provide rebates for psychology services. These will differ depending on your choice of healthcare fund and the level of cover you have. Please contact your provider to check eligibility requirements and reimbursement amounts.

Stepforth Psychology is pleased to welcome clients from the NDIS. To access our service, please refer to your individualised plan to see what funding you have available for psychology services. We are happy to provide both clinical neuropsychology and clinical psychology services under the NDIS.
