GROUP HOARDING DISORDER SESSIONS
GROUP THERAPY WORKSHOPS FOR HOARDING DISORDER.
BASED IN THE EASTERN SUBURBS OF MELBOURNE – August 2023.
Hoarding is a complex issue and many people who have difficulty discarding items feel that people do not understand their attachment to objects. Group therapy for hoarding can be appealing as it gives people an opportunity to meet others facing similar challenges.
Many People with hoarding disorder also have limited funds. They may be unable to pay for treatment so they could be limited to accessing bulk billing psychologists only. This means they can only receive 10 Medicare rebate available individual sessions per year.
The good news is that Medicare also offers rebates for 10 group sessions per year.
Catherine Madigan, a clinical psychologist is offering a 10-session group program for hoarding disorder.
Attendees would be required to do at least one individual session prior to joining a hoarding disorder woukshop, in order to be assessed.
This individual session would be bulk billed for low-income healthcare card holders and can be also offered via telehealth.
Group sessions are in person.
Should a participant not attend a session, Medicare could not be billed for that session and the participant would have to pay for the session they missed, $33.45
People not on a low income concession card would be charged $200 ( rebate $131.65) for the individual assessment session
$800 for the 10 group sessions ( total rebate $334.40 provided all ten sessions are attended as rebate is $33.45 per session, and you cannot get the rebate for a session if you do not attend a session)
The location is yet to be fixed, but would be in the Hawthorn / Kew / Camberwell area once a week.
START DATE AUGUST 2023
SESSIONS WOULD BE 90 MINUTES IN DURATION
