    Medicare:
    Dr Daniel Bowen is a registered provider with Medicare (Provider #: 4888486W). Medicare rebates are now available to clients receiving psychological services with a Mental Health Treatment Plan from a GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician. These provide up to 10 sessions per calendar year. To receive a rebate, the first step is to talk with your GP. Your GP will spend some time finding out about your situation and working with you to make a treatment plan. If  you are eligible for a rebate and your GP feels it would be beneficial, they will write you a referral to a psychologist as part of a Mental Health Treatment Plan. To be able to claim for your psychology sessions, please bring a copy of your doctor’s referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan to your first appointment with us. For more information about this scheme please click here or here.


    Private Health Funds:
    Dr Daniel Bowen is a recognised provider with various private healthcare bodies. If you are not eligible for Medicare rebates, you may still be able to claim from your Private Health Fund with the right level of cover (e.g., HBF, Medibank, BUPA,  NIB, etc.). Please contact us to find out more about our fees and your eligibility for rebates. Please check with your private health insurance provider to see if you are eligible to claim for psychological services.


    Workers Compensation and Insurance Claims:
    Dr Daniel Bowen is a registered provider with WorkCover NSW (Approval #: 14937). After a referral is received we need to confirm with your insurance company that they are willing to pay for you to attend the appointment with us. Once approved, the insurance company will pay in full for you to come to appointments at Dubbo Psychologist.
