& Fees

WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW REFERRALS!

Taylored Psychology is a private practice – the costs associated with running our practice are not covered by the government.

Bulk billing is not available. Fees are payable per consult and must be paid at the time of the consult.

Taylored Psychology cannot offer payment plans and will not book further appointments until all fees are paid. We do not like to action debt collection services and wish to avoid any of our clients experiencing any financial distress by accumulating an unpayable debt. 

Face to face and telehealth consults are available (fees do not differ).

We accept Visa, MasterCard, and debit cards. Amex is not accepted.

Concessions are available for Aged Pensioners.

The fees associated with non-standard consults/other services may vary to those stated below – please speak with our staff.

It is your responsibility to monitor rebate/funding claiming (Medicare, Private Health etc) to ensure you do not exceed the total rebates/funding to which you are entitled. Taylored Psychology will do its best to assist in monitoring rebate/funding claiming but accepts no responsibility for declined claims.

Special Fees

Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA)

There are no out of pocket fees if you hold a gold card or white card with a DVA pre-approved existing condition.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Fees for Self and Plan Managed NDIS participants are as set in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Pricing Limits Guide.

Private Health Insurance

 You will need to contact your insurer to determine what private health rebates you may be able to claim as these vary depending on the level of cover.

Other Funding

In the event you have been granted funding by another body (i.e., RTWSA, CTP), we will discuss with you invoicing them directly for your treatment.  

You cannot ‘double dip’ by using two funding streams, such as using private health insurance to pay the gap for a consult for which you have claimed a Medicare rebate.

Cancellations

We understand that you may need to cancel an appointment occasionally.

If you need to make a cancellation, please advise us at least 48 business hours/2 working days before your appointment time. This will allow patients on the cancellation list a chance to be treated – one day that may be you.

If you do not confirm the appointment after receiving the SMS reminder it will still be assumed that you will attend.

A fee will apply if you cancel with less than 48 business hours’ notice or don’t show up at all, including if you have not confirmed.

Please note, you will be personally responsible for cancellation fees even if your treatment is funded by another body (i.e., DVA, RTWSA, CTP). You cannot claim Medicare rebates to cover the cost of a cancellation fee.

If multiple cancellations occur during your treatment, even if those cancellations occur with the provision of more than 48 business hours’ notice, we may not allow you to book further appointments. Cancellations disrupt the therapeutic process, slow treatment gains, and make it difficult for psychologists to meet their duty of care requirements.

If a replacement service can be delivered, you will not be charged.

We will not tolerate abuse or threats over the cancellation policy. Such behaviour may result in us discharging you from our care.
