Since its development, The Happy Neurons Company has consistently elected to charge clients with fees that are significantly lower than those recommended by the Australian Psychological Society in order to make psychological services more affordable.
For the 2022–2023 financial year, the standard fee for standard 60-minute appointments is $250.00.
A $50 surcharge applies for appointments on Saturdays and Public Holidays.
The Happy Neurons Company usually sends automated SMS/email reminders three days before each appointment to help clients remember their appointment (clients will need to provide their consent for that service during their initial consultation).
Clients are kindly asked to provide enough notice (at least two days) in order to avoid a cancellation fee.
Ben Pillet is a Registered Medicare Provider who delivers "Clinical Psychological Therapy" items. Therefore, clients may be eligible for a rebate of $131.65 per session from Medicare if they are referred by their GP or Psychiatrist with a Mental Health Care Plan (up to 20 sessions per calendar year).
Rebates can be claimed by (1) using the Medicare app, or (2) sending the receipt in with a Medicare claim form or (3) taking the receipt to a Centrelink office.
Some Private Health Insurances (PHI) also offer a rebate. Clients should check directly with them for more information.
