Cancellations made within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment, or failure to attend a scheduled appointment, will incur a $75.00 Cancellation Fee.
This is in accordance with Australian Psychological Society recommendations. If a third party is paying for your appointments they will be charged the full fee and your allowable appointments will be reduced by one.
Some third parties (eg: Insurance Companies and Medicare) do not pay cancellation fees on your behalf. In this case psychAbility reserve the right to charge the individual client the full fee for non-attendance.
This fee is payable prior to any future appointments being made. Medicare rebates are NOT available on Cancellation Fees.
