Private Health Funds 

Rebates for sessions may be available from some private health funds such as BUPA, University or Teachers Health Fund, Nurses and Midwives Health fund. Please check with your individual health funds for rebates to see a Mental Health Social Worker.

Payment for Sessions 

Payment is due at the time of the appointment. Individuals paying for sessions can choose to save a card on file in our secure system, and we will charge the fee at the end of the session. Please ensure you have funds in your account for this payment to be processed at the end of each session.  If your card details change, please let us know so we can update your card details.

Medicare Rebates

After payment has been made at the end of a session, Medicare Rebates are processed online via Medi-pass.  Please ensure you have your bank account details listed with medicare to enable your rebate to be processed.  If any of your medicare details change, please let us know or rebates may be unable to be processed.

Third Party Payment 

Invoices are emailed on the day of the session and payment is requested within 7 days. If you require longer payment terms, please advise us.  Payment can be made via direct deposit into our bank account listed on the invoice. Please ensure you put the invoice number on deposits so we can remit, or payments from organisations are unable to be linked to invoices and marked as paid.

Remittances can be emailed to – happyme@me.com

Medicare Programs

Most clients are referred by their GP under a Mental Health Care Plan and a referral letter.

With a Mental health treatment plan upfront fees are $160 per session. We provide you with a Medicare invoice upon payment, and you can claim up to 10 sessions per calendar year.

Rebates from Medicare are about $77 per session. The initial referral allows for six sessions, then a review is required with the GP to obtain another referral letter for a further 4 sessions.

We review our fees and expenses annually.
