Your Geelong GP can give you a care plan which covers you for 6 rebates in the first round.  Once you have the care plan please email us at appointments@happyminds.net.au
  • You can book an appointment as a private client which means that you pay full fee rather than get a rebate on services
  • You can also use your private health fund to receive a rebate on sessions, the amount depends on the level of cover that you have and you will need to ask your health fund for the amount of rebate you will receive.
