Private Health Insurance
Many private health insurers provide rebates for mental health services.
The amount you are rebated will vary depending on your insurance provider and level of cover. You can’t claim both a Medicare rebate and a private health insurance rebate for the same appointment, so if you are eligible for both a Medicare rebate and private health insurance rebate, then it’s worth weighing up the best option for you.
