FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. Will I have access to Medicare rebates? Yes of course, at 3P we are psychologists and you will be able to receive a Medicare rebate of $88 if you have a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). Bring your plan with you at the first appointment or email it to us. If you do not have a valid plan, we will not be able to process the rebate.
  2. Do you take NDIS clients? Yes absolutely, more than happy to support clients with NDIS plans. We are not a registered NDIS provider which means we can take clients with a self-managed plan and third party managed plan.
  3. Do you offer home or school visits? It is a possibility depending on whether we have psychologists available to do this work on a regular basis. We are certainly able to do assessments in schools. Depending on the distance from our office, there may be an additional fee for transport. We cover the Mornington Peninsula at no extra costs.
  4. Do you have a waitlist for assessments or support? Currently we do not have a waitlist and clients will be able to been within a week of their initial enquiry.
  5. The psychologist we saw suggested doing a school/kinder observation. Why this may be? School/kinder observations can be rich in offering the practitioner contextual cues about possible strengths and challenges the child is experiencing in their environment. It is also a good opportunity to speak to the teacher, discuss best ways to support the child and offer strategies going forward.
  6. The school teacher said we should have an assessment done for our child. What is the benefit of an assessment? An assessment can give rich information about the strengths and needs of a child to provide information for future intervention support. This process can help adults involve in the child’s life to understand needs and strengths better. It may lead to additional support in school.
  7. If we book an assessment, are we guaranteed of a diagnosis for our child? The answer is ‘no’ but the process will definitely highlight the needs of the child and suggest interventions going forward. The process aims to elicit needs and strengths in a range of areas such as socio-emotional, cognitive, learning, adaptive skills, self-care and independence.
  8. Can we book an appointment now? Yes absolutely, you can book an appointment on this website via our client portal. When you register, you will be asked to provide name and phone number. We will process your Medicare rebate after the appointment if you have a MHCP. Alternatively you can give us a call to book an appointment.
  9. What types of NDIS services do you offer? We offer a range of services, see our services page and we can discuss at an initial consultation how we can meet your goals on your plan. We will do a review letter in due course. For a review, please make sure we know the child well to be able to offer rich information for your review.
  10. Do you take private health insurance clients? Yes absolutely. Appointments will need to be paid in full and it will be your responsibility to process refund/rebates with your private health funder. We can provide a receipt of payment.

ASSESSMENT BREAK DOWN

Parents are often surprised about assessment costs. Overall costs for an assessment range from $1200-2200 depending on needs and complexity of the assessment. This section aims to outline the costs in a broken down way so that it reflects the work undertaken during an assessment. The break downs below are typical assessment processes. It may be that depending on needs and contexts there are variations to these typical processes. The psychologist working with you will send you a break down of the assessment process after the initial consultation with the costs. You will be able to pay in instalments or in full. No report feedback will be provided until the totality of payments have been made.
