How does Medicare Rebate work?

If you are eligible for a Medicare rebate then we would be happy to assist you in obtaining it. When you attend a session you will be billed the cost of the session, if you pay by EFTPOS then we can process your rebate instantly and put the rebate amount straight back into your account. Please be aware that there is usually a gap fee (or out of pocket expense) for attending a session at Distinct Directions.

An example is:

Example Only Medicare Item No. Total Fee Your Medicare Rebate Gap Fee (Out of Pocket Expense)
Individual Therapy Session 80110 $146.90 $84.80 $62.10

So, for the example above : $146.90 is removed from the nominated account, Medicare then places a rebate to that account for $84.80 meaning that a total of $62.10 is paid for the service.
