Change to Psychologist Fee Structure

Cygnet Clinic has not changed our pricing structure for many years, despite increasing costs. 

We have recently reviewed our fees and updated our concession policy.  To help with people who need to be seen under bulk-billing or low cost services, we have compiled a list of services in the area available upon request, and suggest the free PORTS service.  If you (or your patient or your loved one) needs help urgently follow this link.

Psychology consultations at our concession rate for 50 cent gap (out-of-pocket fee) and bulk billing are no longer provided.
As from March 2021 our fees for those on concession status will increase from $128.90 to $150.00. For Private (non concession) the rate will increase from $195 to $210.  

Our services under Medicare have always been well under the Australian Psychological Society Recommended Rate (Currently $260 per 50 minute consult)
