SHQ Counselling is transitioning to Medicare billing.
You may be eligible for a Medicare rebate (via a Mental Health Care Plan) for your sessions. If you are not eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan, sessions will be charged at a flat rate of $50.
Please see the table below regarding fees and eligibility:
|1st session||Remaining sessions||Mental Health Care Plan|
|21 & Under, Concession or Healthcare Card Holders||Free||$30||Bulk Bill (No out of pocket cost)|
|Over 21||$50||$50||$30 gap fee (after Medicare rebate)|
You are able to access 10 counselling sessions at SHQ per calendar year.
Counselling sessions for unintended pregnancy and post termination issues are free of charge.
Our unintended pregnancy counselling is funded by the Women and Newborn Health Service, North Metropolitan Health Service.
