Claiming therapy on private health cover


Almost all the private health insurers include mental health services in the policy extras. It's important to check your policy to ensure it's included in your cover.

Once you've confirmed it is, then you can book either a counsellor, social worker, psychotherapist or psychologist as long as they are an approved provider.

Many people opt to book with a counsellor as the wait times can be a lot shorter than a psychologists who are in high demand due to the Medicare rebates. If you are unsure of the difference between the two, take a look at our helpful blog post that explains the differences between therapists.
