Rebates 

Under the Medicare Better Access to Mental Health Scheme, you may be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate of $137.05 for each session for up to ten therapy sessions in a year. To claim the rebate, you will need to obtain a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP with Iris's contact details on it. Please email the Care Plan to Iris before your first session.

Some private health insurance funds offer a partial rebate for psychological sessions. Please refer to your fund details for information around this. Please note that you cannot claim both a Medicare rebate and a private health fund rebate at the same time, and that some private health funds only provide rebates when the Medicare rebates have been used up for the year.

There is a 48 hours’ notice for cancellation or rescheduling of appointments. Changes to appointments within 24 hours will attract a full cancellation fee that cannot be covered by Medicare or Private Health Insurance.
