Did you know you can access rebates for your psychology sessions through many private health insurances? Discover how you can get a private health rebate for your mental health support.
No, you can only claim rebates for a psychology session one time, either through your private health insurance provider or through Medicare. If you’ve already made a Medicare claim for your session, your private health insurer won’t give you any additional rebates.
If you don’t have private health insurance or if your insurance plan doesn’t include psychology services, you may still be able to receive reduced-cost therapy sessions through Medicare. To be eligible for Medicare rebates, you’ll need a valid Medicare card, a Mental Health Plan and a GP referral letter.
If you aren’t eligible for Medicare rebates (you don’t have a Mental Health Plan, GP referral letter and valid Medicare card), you may choose to access reduced-cost psychology sessions through private health insurance instead.
If you are eligible for Medicare rebates, you can receive a maximum of 10 rebated psychology sessions per calendar year. If you wish to continue with therapy after you’ve completed your 10 sessions, you may claim these through private health insurance instead.
When you make your psychology session booking you’ll pay the full private fee. Once the session has been completed the amount will be charged to your account and My Mirror will email you the paid invoice. Then you’re ready to make your claim directly through your private health insurance provider.
The amount you will be rebated through private health insurance depends your insurance plan’s level of cover.
Most private health insurers require psychologists to be registered with Medicare Australia and with the AHPRA.
All clinical psychologists and general psychologists at My Mirror are fully registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) and are listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Before booking your psychology session, check your private health insurance policy to ensure your psychologist meets their criteria.
Just like face-to-face psychologists, our Registered Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA), listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and individually approved by My Mirror.

Absolutely brilliant service. Can not recommend this enough. So easy to use the online platform. A diverse selection of psychologists to talk to depending on your circumstance.
I live in a regional area with very little resources available for mental health. My Mirror was a great help and was super quick with any questions including how to add my mental health plan.
In the current environment where wait lists for psychologists are 12 months plus, this service gives you access to wonderful psychologists with no wait lists.
I was having trouble getting mental health services in my area, at an affordable price, and that had time slots that were workable for me. I've been connected to a great psychologist, well suited to my needs. Highly recommend.
