Fees

Kids@Heart is a private psychological practice, which operates on a fee-for-service basis.

Please contact the clinic to discuss your individual needs and then we will be able to provide you with our fee schedule.

Consultation sessions may attract a rebate depending on the referral question and pathway. Some families may have the option of using Medicare or a private health fund to help pay for private assessments.

Rebates

If your child has a referral under the “Medicare Better Access to Mental Health” scheme from a general practitioner, paediatrician or psychiatrist, your family will receive a subsidised rebate from Medicare. This plan provides your child with up to 6 – 10 individual therapy sessions each calendar year. This plan is renewable every calendar year. 

The Chronic Disease Management Plan is available to children with Chronic Care needs. This plan needs to be provided by your child’s general practitioner. It entitles your family to receive a subsidised rebate from Medicare. Your child is eligible to receive up to 5 sessions of allied health therapy, including psychology, every calendar year.

For the most part, Medicare will refund a partial amount of the overall cost of services and this will usually leave families with an out-of-pocket expense. If you have reached your Medicare ‘safety net’ threshold, higher rebates for Medicare-subsidised services may apply.

Medicare provides subsidised rebates for ASSESSMENT of children suspected of having an Autism Spectrum Disorder to some families. A specific referral from a paediatrician or psychiatrist is needed and the child must be under the age of 13 years. The package allows for a total of 4 allied health ASSESSMENT sessions.

Your child must have been assessed as being eligible to access Early Intervention services. Funding of up to $12,000 can be available to children with an ASD until their 7th birthday.

If your family has private health insurance including ‘extras’ rebates may be available depending on your level of cover. Please check with your health fund to find out more. 

Some families may not be eligible for Medicare or have private health fund cover and therefore the consultations will be a total out-of-pocket expense.
