Private health insurance and medicare rebates

In Australia at present private practice psychotherapists are unfortunately discriminated against by government policy.  Despite having a psychology degree and approximately three years of specialist study in somatic psychotherapy, plus regular professional supervision, I am not able to access Medicare subsidies for my services.

Some private health insurers are now providing rebates for psychotherapy / counselling services (e.g. Medibank Private who list these under “Alternative medicine” despite the fact I don’t consider my work to be alternative medicine) but these are not so common.  It is worth checking if you have an extras policy.
