How much will it cost?

Counselling

  • Counselling Fees are calculated on a sliding scale dependent on your level of family income.  Please contact 0422 416 894 to discuss this further in complete privacy so that your confidential details are not disclosed to others.

Rebates from Private Health Insurers 

  • Australian Unity Health  offers rebates for counselling services to its members under the following circumstances:

    • Life Choice: 80% of the cost up to a maximum of $200 per person or $500 for a family policy.

    • Life Choice Plus: 80% of the cost up to a maximum of $400 for an individual or $400 for each person in a family policy.

    • Eligible members may claim the benefit for counselling under the health  management services provision of their policy provided they have a letter from a GP identifying the condition and the recommended treatment such as counselling. Members need to provide a referral letter, valid for 6 months, from their GP when making a claim.

  • Medibank Private/AHM by Medibank offers some rebates depending on the package the member holds. Rebates can be claimed as part of the Medibank Private “bonus package”. The maximum customers can have in their bonus accounts is $500 for a Single membership and $1000 for a family (it takes 5 years to accumulate these
    levels). Theoretically, if a member had $1000 in their account and they
    presented a Counselling account for $100, Medibank would pay the whole
    $100, meaning the client could access up to 10 fully paid counselling sessions.

  • BUPA offers some rebates for members with Bupa’s Extras Products.  There are a number of factors that can affect what benefit is payable, including the product the member is on, waiting periods, and yearly limits. We recommend that the client should contact Bupa directly on 134 135 to determine their benefit entitlements.

  • Police Health Fund - Only Police Health Members with relevant policies will be eligible for counselling rebates. Rebates can be claimed as part of extras benefits.  Only members with this type of policy can make a claim for counselling.
    Counselling benefits sit as a separate recognised modality within extras cover. Benefits are paid per recognised service up to an annual limit of $400 per person and $800 per policy where that policy covers 2 or more persons. Benefits for Counselling and Psychology services are subject to a combined annual limit of $850 per person..

  • Doctor's Health Fund offers rebates for counselling services for members who hold Top Hospital or Top Extras cover.

  • Other Private Health Insurance Companies may provide rebates for counselling if you have Extras Cover.  Please check with your Private Health Insurer.

Appointment Booking Policy 

 

When an appointment is made with Life Vision Counselling, a significant amount of time is kept in reserve for that appointment.  Last minute cancellations, or non-attendance i.e. when a client fails to keep a scheduled appointment without notice (No Show), are inconvenient, costly and affect other clients who would have preferred that appointment time.  

Accordingly, patients wishing to cancel or reschedule an appointment must do so no later than 48 hours before the time of the appointment.

What is an appointment holding fee?

 

Appointment holding fees have been introduced to reduce the number of clients who book and reserve an appointment, then fail to attend the appointment (No Show).  When patients do this, they take up an appointment booking, which then isn't used.  Other patients who are on our waiting list, desperately needing our services, are prevented from being able to obtain the help they need.

Effective from 1st April, 2020, all new patients seeking an appointment must pay an initial holding fee of $50.  Those appointments are not reserved or secured until the holding fee is paid at the time of making the booking.  All our bookings are now processed through our online booking system.

 

Payments can be made via your secure Internet Banking App. or by Credit Card using our online booking system.

 

The appointment holding fee is exclusive of and does not form part of any late cancellation fee.

We do not refund appointment holding fees when the you cancel appointments with less than 48 hours notice, or if you fail to attend your appointment.

What happens if I need to change my appointment?

 

All appointments are reserved especially for the client.

 

Patients may change the appointment at any time, with a limit of two reschedules (for counselling services only), as long as at least 48 hours prior notice is provided.

 

Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice will attract a late cancellation fee of $100 Mon-Fri for counselling patients and the FULL fee for Saturday.  The late cancellation fee is $180 for all hypnotherapy patients.  

The late cancellation fee is exclusive of and does not include any appointment holding fee.

Additional Fees: 

 

Unlike other practices, at Life Vision Counselling, we do not bill any surcharges or additional fees for after hours, or weekend appointments.

.

All terms and conditions as expressed form part of any agreement to engage any of the services provided by Life Vision Counselling

At Life Vision Counselling, we do not bill a surcharge, or any additional fees for evening, or weekend appointments.  However Late Cancellation Fees Do Apply.
