Bulk Billing

  • The Australian Psychological Society's recommended fee for a 55-minute consultation with a psychologist is $228.00.
  •  

  • Our fee is $0
    (bulk-billed)

  • An article in The Age (May 7, 2007), entitled "Psychologist Access is a Mind Game", reported that the distribution of access to psychological services is skewed toward more affluent areas. Many psychologists are charging well above the Medicare rebated rate, which hinders access for those with low disposable incomes (i.e., cash in excess of the costs of daily living).

     

    Primary Care Psychology was created to improve access to psychological services to members of the community who have difficulty attending a regular medical clinic, or have difficulty paying standard clinic fees.
