Cheree is committed to providing affordable Mental Health care to the local community.
Up to 10 sessions in a calendar year can be bulk billed (with no surcharge or gap) for clients referred by either a GP or a psychiatrist who have a valid mental health plan with Medicare.
DVA Health Cards (Gold and White) will be accepted as full payment with a GP referral.
Cheree will also do home visits to Aged Care facilities for clients who have a DVA Health Card, with no additional fee required.
No referral or need more sessions?
If you do not have a referral or need more than the 10 sessions provided under Medicare then Cheree’s standard fees will apply:
- Standard Fees are payable at the time of the appointment
- For a standard 50-60 minute appointment, Cheree’s fee is $125.
- For a standard home visit, Cheree’s fee is $150
After Hours and weekend appointments
For your convenience, after hours and weekend appointments are available (including Sundays) and are also bulk billed with no surcharge with a referral/valid mental health plan.
Home visits between Faulconbridge and Katoomba are available by special request/arrangement. If you have a valid/genuine reason for needing a home visit then Cheree is happy to see you at home and she will bulk bill all home visits through Medicare (as long as you have a GP referral/valid mental health plan). Home visits without a GP referral will cost $150 for a standard session. If you require a home visit, please call to discuss this and to organise a suitable time.
Cancellations on the day of the appointment and “No Shows” will attract a $45 fee (no rebate is available for this charge). If you are unable to keep your appointment please give at least 24 hours’ notice.
Appointment Reminder Service
We do provide a courtesy service that sends you a SMS reminder the day before your appointment (or a phone call if you only have a landline). Please note this service is a courtesy, and you are responsible for remembering your appointment date/time.
