Appointment Fees

We are a privately billing clinic. Payment is on the day of consultation only, by cash, EFTPOS or credit card. A Medicare rebate will be directly deposited back into your account if you are registered for same day claiming.

 

If attending for workers compensation or motor vehicle accidents, please inform us of your Workcover or ICWA claim number. If you are seen prior to obtaining your claim number, you will be charged privately and reimbursed by Workcover or ICWA upon processing of your claim.

 

If a patient does not attend, or fails to cancel greater than 2 hours of their scheduled appointment time, they will be issued a ‘Late Cancellation’ or ‘Non-Attendance’ fee of $40 (short) or $60 (long). These fees will vary depending on the appointment type.

Appointment Types

Mental Health Care Plans are a tool for you and your doctor to assess your mental health and plan your recovery, often with the help of a mental health practitioner, such as a psychologist or mental health OT.

 

If you think you need a Mental Health Care Plan, please book a comprehensive (30 minute) consultation with your GP. Alternatively, your GP might suggest developing a care plan if he/she/they thinks you might benefit from one.

 

The care plan may take one or two appointments to develop based on your current problem and health.

 

Your plan, once completed and billed, will allow access to rebated psychological counselling services with registered providers. You and your GP will decide who would be best for you to see. There may still be an ‘out of pocket payment’ to see your Counsellor, however you will have access to up to 10 rebated visits with a counsellor per year.

Chronic Disease Management Plans are available to patients who have an illness expected to last longer than six months. Our personalised care plans focus on issues such as hypertension, asthma, and diabetes. Developing a plan helps both you and your GP to set goals for your health and plan your care proactively.

 

At St Francis Subiaco, plans are discussed with your GP and then written in conjunction with our practice nurse.

 

If you have a Chronic Disease Management Plan, you may also benefit from a Team Care Arrangement. This allows you and your GP to develop a team of practitioners to help you achieve your health goals. Your team must consist of at least three Health Providers – your GP, (e.g., a Specialist, Allied Health Practitioner, Psychologist etc.), could help you with your goals.

When you have a Team Care Arrangement, you may be eligible for Medicare rebates (up to five per calendar year) to see the Allied Health practitioners who are on your team. These referrals are developed during your care plan appointment with the practice nurse and Doctor.
