Private Health Fund claims

All of our practitioners are registered with Private Health Funds.

If you have extras cover for Clinical Psychology, Psychology or Exercise Physiology or Nutrition services, we will provide you an invoice receipt to submit to your Health Fund for reimbursement.

Private patients will need to check with their health fund for individual eligibility to claim Telehealth or Telephone items. Most funds have agreed to cover teleconsultations from 30th March up to 30th September 2020 (during the COVID-19 outbreak). Health funds require clients receive a letter from their GP recommending telehealth services if they wish to claim for teleheath psychology sessions.

Medicare rebates

A valid GP referral (such as a GP Mental Health Care Plan referral) and presentation of your Medicare card at your appointment, is required in order to claim a Medicare rebate on psychology appointments.

For Medicare rebates on exercise physiology appointments, presentation of your Medicare card, in addition to a GP Chronic Disease Management referral (formerly known as Enhanced Primary Care plan) is required.

Your Medicare rebate is processed after you pay for your appointment. Funds will go into the savings or cheque account you have nominated with Medicare, usually within 1 business day of your apointment.

Concession

Discounted consultation fees for Low-Income Concession Card Holders

At Thrive Wellness we believe mental health treatment should be accessible to everybody. We are offering special concession rates for psychology services to individuals who have a low-income health care card that have a valid Mental Health Care Plan referral from their GP.

To access this concession rate, clients need to phone us and discuss when booking their appointment. Clients may be placed on a waiting list until a concession appointment becomes avaialble, and will need to present their concession card to be eligible.

Vulnerable & Isolated Clients during COVID-19

If you don’t have a low-income card, but are experiencing financial hardship, please contact our practice to discuss your situation and how we can support you to access psychological services at this time.

DVA, Workcover, NDIS appointments

ThriveWellness is an approved NDIS Provider and all our practitioners are registered providers for Medicare, Workcover and DVA.

Department of Veteran Affairs Silver or Gold card holders are able to access Psychology and Exercise Physiology Telehealth services with a valid GP referral.

Free Introductory Nutrition Consultations

A complimentary introductory nutrition consultation is available for clients within Australia and internationally who would like to explore whether partnering with Thrive Wellness is best fit for their health concerns and treatment goals. It provides opportunity for clients to ask questions and explore whether they’d like to pursue Functional testing and/or Clinical Nutrition interventions to improve their health.

Clinical Nutrition

Prior to your appointment, you’ll be asked to complete a comprehensive intake form, food diary, and provide us with results of any pathology tests or assessments you’ve already had. These will be reviewed prior to your appointment and your 50 minute initial appointment will allow for focused interview questions, followed by personalised education and discussion of a recommended treatment plan, and if indicated, further testing. We can provide you with a private referral for any pathology tests we recommend, or we can liaise with your Treating Doctor who can assess your eligibility for referral for testing through Medicare.

More information about our Clinical Nutrition consultations, and some of the tests we may recommend can be found under Services.
