Telehealth and Face-To-Face (In Clinic)
$195 for an initial appointment (1 hour)
$120 for a review appointment (30-40 minutes)
Initial appointments are 60 minutes, and follow-up appointments are generally 30-45 minutes.
If you have a care plan from your GP, Medicare may provide a rebate for visits to APDs to help manage chronic health conditions. Your GP might write you a care plan to help manage chronic medical conditions and Eating Disorders.
The Medicare rebate is $56. You will need to pay the gap between the APDs fee and the Medicare rebate. The number of visits eligible for the rebate depends on your care plan.
Most private health funds cover visits to APDs in private practice. Contact your insurer to see what’s covered by your health insurance policy.
