Standard consultations are for 50 minutes and fees are based on a percentage of the Recommended Fee set by the Australian Psychological Society according to your annual income.


For Clinical Psychology consultations from 2014, fees range from $165 to $230 (~75% to ~100% of the APS Rec. Fee). For consultations with Dr Simon Crisp, fees range from $180 to $230.


With Medicare rebates, gap payments range from $40.50



to $105.50 (see Medicare section below).  We also have immediate electronic Medicare rebates through our EasyClaim facility (available during business hours).

Medicare rebates


Psychology services attract Medicare rebates for mental health disorders when you or your child is referred by a GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician.  There is a maximum of 10 standard sessions claimable per calendar year with a review by the referrer after the sixth session. [*Please note that from 2013 the Federal government has removed the option of 'exceptional circumstances' and an additional 6 sessions in these situations.]

The current rebate amount for standard consultations is $124.50 for Clinical Psychologists [$84.80 for non-clinical Psychologists].  It is recommended that you speak directly to Medicare for more information about rebates Phone: 13 20 11.  Please be aware that your eligibility for a rebate rests with the referring medical practitioner and Medicare.

Health insurance rebates

Psychology services can attract a private health insurance rebate for part of this fee with extras cover (please check with your insurance provider or see the information on the APS website). You can use private health insurance cover in addition to Medicare rebates (but not to claim twice for the same service) and you do not need a referral from a medical practitioner to qualify. However, unfortunately, please note that we reserve the right to charge an administration fee if an insurer's requirement to make a claim eligible is unreasonably onerous.
