Fees

***We are not a bulk billing practice***

Anyone can book an appointment, with or without a referral. 

Dr Stemm endeavours to keep her session charge below that which is recommended by the Australian Psychological Society  ($300 per hour).

Dr Stemm's Fees

Standard Consultation (50 Minutes)

  • Face-to-face: $260 

  • Telehealth/Phone: $260 

Extended Consultation (80 Minutes) (available only when clinically indicated and subject to availability) 

  • Face-to-Face: $390

  • Telehealth/Phone: $390

Clinical Supervision

  • $260 per hour

Letters/Reports/Phone calls

  • Letters and reports attract a fee commensurate with the APS Recommended Fees (currently set at $300+GST per hour).

  • Phone calls which occur frequently, or are more than 10 minutes long will also attract the APS recommended fee, pro-rata.

  • There is no charge for standard Medicare reports which are considered a normal component of treatment.

Late Cancellation Fees

  • Due to the high demand for Psychology Services, we require 24 hours notice of cancellation (or, for Monday appointments, please let us know before close of business on Fridays). If this notice is not provided and the appointment time can not be filled from our waitlist, a 75% charge of the full fee will be applied ($195). In the event that you fail to attend a scheduled appointment, the full clinical fee will be applied ($260). 

  • Medicare and private health rebates can not be applied to cancellation/no show fees.

  • All cancellation fees must be paid prior to future appointments.

Medicare Rebates

Please check with your GP or Psychiatrist if you are eligible for any of the following.

With a valid “Mental Health Care Plan” from your GP or Psychiatrist:

  • you can receive a Medicare rebate of $136.35 per session, for up to 10 sessions each year. (Gap fee = $123.65 per session).

With a valid “Eating Disorders Plan” from your GP and Psychiatrist:

  •  you can receive a Medicare rebate of $136.35 per session for 40 sessions in a 12 month period. (Gap fee = $123.65 per session).

With a valid “Chronic Disease Management Plan” from your GP:

  • you can receive a Medicare rebate of $58 for a maximum of 4 sessions per calendar year (Gap fee of $202). Check with your doctor if you are eligible. 

Private Health Funding

If you have Private Health Cover, you may qualify for a rebate through your Private Health fund. Speak directly with your fund to determine your eligibility.

You can not claim both Medicare and Private Health rebates on the same session.

Third Party Funding

Third party Claims such as Workcover, NDIS, and Insurance can not be processed directly via the third party (with the exception of DVA). However, if you have third party funding approval, we are able to issue you with an invoice and receipt so that you can claim the costs back through the third party. Please note that standard consultation fees still apply for third party referrals. Contact us to find out more.
