In order to make important psychology services more accessible to all, the fee for a 50 minute one on one session is substantially less than the Australian Psychological Society’s recommended rate of $246.
Please note that Your Calmer is not a bulk billing service, however some concessions may apply if health care cards can be produced at your first session.
We also offer Skype sessions to clients in rural and remote areas and Medicare rebates apply. In order to be eligible for rebates you must be located in regions 4-7 of the Monash Model. Click here for eligibility for rebates. Remember to click on the Monash Model on the page.
Other out-of-session services such as report writing will also incur a fee in line with the APS rates and this can be discussed with our friendly staff.
Medicare Rebates and Private Health Insurance
If you have a valid mental health care plan and referral from your GP, you are entitled to a rebate that is processed by our friendly staff back into your savings or cheque account on the same day of service.
It may also be worth checking with your Private Health Insurance provider regarding what rebate they offer you for Psychological Services as this vary amongst insurance providers.
Payment for sessions is required at your appointment via cash or our EFTPOS services.
Late Cancellations and Non Attendances
Please note that an appointment time is one that is set aside specifically for individual clients. As such, Your Calmer invoices clients for cancellations less than 24 hours of scheduled appointments. This is at the rate of 50% of the full fee for cancellations (within 48 hours) and 100% of the full fee for late cancellations or non attendances (within 24 hours). Please note that these fees are not subject to Medicare or private rebates.
Your Calmer also reserves the right to charge for additional time and costs associated with reissuing unpaid invoices.
