Claiming your Medicare Rebate

To claim your rebate, you will need to provide a copy of a current referral and your current Medicare card details. Full payment is taken at time of session. Your Psych Centre will then process the Medicare rebate on your behalf. The rebate will be returned directly to your nominated bank account with Medicare. This usually takes 1 to 2 business days.

If you do not have a referral, and have Private Health cover, check with your insurer if you are eligible for a rebate.
