The standard consultation fee is $240.00 for a 50-60 minute consultation, which is below the APS recommended rate http://www.psychology.org.au/Assets/Files/Recommended_Fees.pdf.

A referral from your GP with a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) attached may render you eligible for Medicare benefits; as will a written referral from a Psychiatrist or Paediatrician, without the need for a MHTP. The current Medicare rebate for a session held in-rooms is $124.50, and for a home visit the rebate is $145.65.

Some people choose to forgo the MHTP even when eligible.  You can discuss your options with your Doctor in the first instance.

Private health fund rebates are available depending on your fund and on your level of cover. 

You cannot claim rebate from Medicare and a private fund for the same service.
