Fees & Appointments

Session Fees

Fees are $165 for Generalist Psychologists and $205 for Clinical Psychologists. Sessions with our Principal Psychologist, Simon Ashfield-Smith, are $220. Sessions are 50 minutes in duration.

Rebates may be available through Medicare and Private Health Insurance. If you are eligible for a Medicare Rebate your “out of pocket” expense after this rebate will be $80.20 for Generalist Psychologists or $80.50 for Clinical Psychologists per session. Sessions with Simon Ashfield-Smith will result in an “out of pocket” expense of $95.50.

For your convenience our practice offers EFTPOS, Medicare Easyclaim and HICAPS facilities for payments. With Medicare Easyclaim your Medicare Rebate can be directed into your Cheque or Savings Account, so that you will not need to attend a Medicare Office. Alternatively, if you wish to use your private health fund, we can organise your rebate at the time of the consultation so you only have to pay the gap.

Medicare Rebates

Medicare offers rebates for Australian citizens who visit their Psychologist. You do need however to first visit your General Practitioner (GP) and explain your mental health concerns and obtain a referral. It is polite to book a longer consultation with your GP so that they have adequate time to develop a care plan with you. Your GP will give you a referral called a “Mental Health Care Plan”, along with a letter of referral, which entitles you to Medicare Rebates. All you need to do is bring these two documents to your first consultation at BlueSky Psychology and our friendly staff will organise the rest. You are entitled up to 10 sessions in a calendar year (January to December).

Private Health Rebates

A substantial proportion of your consultation fee may be reclaimed through private health funds. Our Psychologists are registered with all major health insurers. Our office has HICAPS facilities so if you bring your health fund card we can organise your rebate at the time of the consultation. If you would like to know the amount of rebate prior to your first session you will need to contact your health fund.
