Referral

If you feel that you would eligible for a rebate under Medicare Better Access Initiative due to mental health difficulties encountered in managing ADHD symptoms, then you could meet with your GP or Specialist to discuss your eligibility for a Mental Health Care Plan and obtain a referral under the Better Access Initiative, namely group therapy item number 80120.

Medicare Rebate

For those who have an eligible referral, a receipt per session attended will be emailed following attendance at a session. These receipts can be used to claim a Medicare rebate of approximately $22.55 per session attended. Please note that Medicare rebates cannot be claimed for sessions which the client does not attend and it is a Medicare requirement that a minimum of 6 participants attend in order for any participants to get the rebate. We cannot guarantee the rebate due to participant non-attendance should total numbers fall below the minimum requirement of 6.

Private Health Care

If you wish to access your private healthcare cover, please check with your provider if you are entitled to a rebate from your private health insurance policy.

Fee Agreement

Registration and payment mean that I understand that I am expected to pay the course fee in advance of the start of the course, and I am not entitled to a refund for non-attendance. I further understand that receipts for the purpose of claiming Medicare rebates will be issued on a session by session basis, and will be not issued if for any missed sessions. I understand that it is the client’s responsibility to process Medicare claims.
