Automated credit card payments have always been our preferred method of payment and no additional admin fees are charged for this method. We have continued to try and accommodate clients who prefer not to pay via credit card by accepting EFT (internet banking) payments. Because this results in significantly more admin than credit card payments (e.g. emailing of invoices, tracking EFT payments, allocating payments, emailing receipts, following up of missed payments), we are happy to continue to offer this service however we feel the need to cover our administration costs by charging a $5.00 administration fee per session. Your overall fee for the session will be $5 more than the rates above. E.g. If your session is 45 minutes long, you will be billed at $155 instead of $150.
We endeavor to keep parents, teachers and other professionals up to date with what is being covered in therapy and strategies. Should you require regular written summaries of session notes, we are happy to provide these however these may need to be done during part of your child’s session time or billed for. This can be discussed with your child’s therapist.
Please note if using an Enhanced Primary Care plan from your G.P. a new one must be obtained every calender year. If your child has not used all 5 sessions in a year, you still need to receive a new plan from your G.P.
