Individuals and families may choose to access services privately and, in that case, a formal referral and/or mental health care plan by a medical professional is not required. In this instance, the full fee is an out of pocket expense.
However, families may be eligible for the following rebates:
Lucianne is a registered Medicare provider and rebates may be available through Medicare depending on your eligibility. A mental health care plan from a General Practitioner (GP), Paediatrician or Psychiatrist is required in order to access these rebates. Medicare will offer a rebate of $87.45 for up to 10, 50-minute consultations (an initial six consultations for those that are eligible, with the possibility of an additional four sessions per calendar year). A further 10 rebates per calendar year is available for pandemic support until June of 2022.
*Please note that a Medicare rebate cannot be accessed for parent consultations.
Rebates may be available through your private health insurance. It is recommended that you refer to your insurance provider for further information.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
Lucianne also accepts referrals through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for plans that are self-managed.
