Funding

All psychologists at Satori Place Of Awakening are approved to provide services under the following federal funding options:

  • Medicare’s Better Access Initiative
    • The Medicare rebate under this initiative significantly reduces the cost per session, up to 10 sessions per calendar year.
  • ATAPS (Access to Allied Psychological Services)
    • Sessions funded under ATAPS are free of charge, up to 18 sessions per calendar year.

To find out if you are eligible for either of these streams of funding, you will need to see your GP, as they have the authority to assess your eligibility.  If you are eligible, your GP can refer you to one of the psychologists at our practice.  Your GP will need to complete a mental health care plan for you, relevant to whichever stream they deem you eligible for. 

Privately funded sessions:

You also have the choice of referring yourself to our practice independently, without a referral from a GP.  In this case, your sessions will be charged to you at the fee per session valid at the time of your appointment.  You will then receive a receipt, which you can submit to your private health insurance company for reimbursement, should you wish to do so.
