Private Health Fund Rebates

Kathleen is a registered provider with all major health funds, which means you may be able to claim a rebate through your health fund depending on your level of extras cover. Rebates vary so contacting your private health provider before making an appointment is recommended.


Registered Medicare Provider

Medicare rebates are available for adults and children who have a chronic condition and are being managed under a care plan and team care arrangement through their GP. You can ask your GP if you or your child qualify for this program. Ensure you have this referral at your initial consultation. Kathleen will report assessment results and education provided to your General Practitioner as part of this team care approach. 



Kathleen is able to provide services for those with self-managed or plan-managed NDIS plans.
