The cost of attending counselling will vary. The standard consultation fee is $165. While you do not need a referral to make an appointment, to obtain a Medicare rebate of $84.80 per session, you require a Mental Health Treatment Plan from your general practitioner. This leaves a gap of $80.20 to be paid for each consultation.
Adriana understands that this can be quite costly, especially if attending regularly is important for you. Reduced fees can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Those experiencing genuine financial hardship may be eligible for bulk-billing. Please discuss this with Adriana prior to, or at your first consultation.
Please note: If you have reached your Medicare Safety Net threshold within a calendar year, the Medicare rebate is increased (meaning less out-of-pocket expenses per consultation for the rest of the calendar year). For more information, please get in contact.
Adriana is also a service provider for the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and Worksafe Victoria.
If you are a Diabetes Victoria member, you are entitled to receive six bulk-billed sessions when you present with a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan. This is a saving of $480. Proof of Diabetes Victoria membership is required at the first session. For more details, please email email@example.com
