How to Access a Medicare Rebate

Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment by registered psychologists under the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. 

This scheme provides considerable assistance to people living with mental health problems, allowing them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable healthcare.

At Currambine Psychology Centre, all psychologists are registered with the national registration board, the Psychology Board of Australia.

Intellectual Assessments on IPAD's

The initial suite recommended is the BASC-3 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System (BASC-3 BESS), the BASC-3 Parenting Relationship Questionnaire (BASC-3 PRQ), and the Delis-Rating of Executive Function (D-REF).  The charge for the three tests is only $39 total.  You will have access to the results as will your GP, providing not only useful clinical information, but also establishing a baseline for tracking your child’s development in the future.

Should further testing be required based on the results of the initial screening, we recommend the Millon Pre-Adolescent Clinical Inventory (M-PACI) or Millon Adolescent Personality Inventory (MAPI), both of which are available through the same system.
