Patients/clients of Leah come from a variety of referral sources and are covered under a variety of funding arrangements. This includes but is not limited to the following:


General Practitioners (GP) – particularly under a GP Mental Health Care Plan (where you are entitled to a rebate under Medicare – see section below called Medicare.



At present the Medicare system enables patient to obtain a rebate for 10 sessions per calendar year (January to December each year).  The former 20 session care plans came under Medicare rules involving the COVID-19 pandemic (in 2022) and ceased on 31 December 2022.  


To obtain a plan and the subsequent rebate you must see a GP before your first session.  When arranging an appointment to see a GP for a mental health care plan it is recommended you advise the GP's receptionist that you are seeking this plan as they may require you to book a longer consultation or multiple consultations.

Leah charges an out of pocket expense (also known as a gap fee).  See Fees page for more information.





  • Self-referral  - you are not required to have a GP Mental Health Care Plan (however, will need this if you want a Medicare rebate)

  • Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA)

  • Work Cover - Australia Wide

  • NDIS 


Leah does not see patients under Victim Services or CTP claims (Motor Accident Insurance).


Rebates are available with most private health insurers. However, you cannot claim a further rebate if you have already claimed with Medicare.  The private health option is usually if the patient requires further sessions.


The rebate is usually between $30 to $70, and for a limited number of sessions. It is recommended you contact your insurer to check your level of cover and the rebate.
