Psychoeducational and Developmental Assessments

  • Please get in touch to discuss the process and to obtain a quote for comprehensive assessment services.

Rebates

  • Better Access Initiative: Medicare rebates of $84.80 per session, for 10 sessions per calendar year are available for psychology sessions for services concerning mental health (i.e. anxiety, depression). You need to advise us if you have used any sessions on your plan with another allied health professional. Note that Counsellor/Provisional Psychologist services are not covered by Medicare.
  • Clients are encouraged to register for the Medicare Safety Net, designed to protect high users of health services from large out-of-pocket expenses. See http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/medicare/medicare-safety-net
  • Melanie Waugh and Amy Foley are approved Brisbane MIND providers. Brisbane MIND is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, and is managed by Brisbane North PHN. There is no out-of-pocket cost to clients for services provided under the Brisbane MIND program.
  • Private Health Insurance: Please check with your insurer to determine your level of cover and rebate amount. We will provide an invoice so that you can claim on your private health insurance. Note that Counsellor/Provisional Psychologist services are not covered by private health funds.

Cancellation Policy

  • 24 hours’ notice is required to reschedule or cancel a session without incurring additional fees.
  • If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice you will be charged a cancellation fee (50% of the relevant session fee).
  • If you do not attend an appointment and do not let us know you will not be attending you will be charged a cancellation fee (100% of the relevant session fee).
  • Exceptional or unforeseen circumstances may be considered at the discretion of your treating psychologist where there is a request to waive a cancellation fee. You cannot claim a Medicare or Health Insurance rebate for a cancellation fee.
  • Please keep in mind that a late cancelled appointment impacts on three people: the client who is delaying their progress; another client who is on a waiting list to see a psychologist; and the psychologist who has spent time preparing for the session.

 Other Clinical Services

  • Reports and support letters requested by clients will be charged at a pro rata session rate. These fees are to be agreed upon and paid before the required service is to be performed.  No Medicare rebates are currently available for these services.
