Nature of service

Booking appointments

When booking an appointment with PSYCH2U, you are required to provide payment card details. Bookings for a patient under 16 years of age, require a parent or guardian to provide payment card details. These details are required to ensure that PSYCH2U can process payments in a timely manner.

Deposits

We will take a deposit from your payment card at the time of booking. For psychology appointments, your payment card will be charged a $75 deposit. For psychiatry appointments, your payment card will be charged the lesser of $250 and 50% of your appointment fee. Upon completion of your appointment, your payment card will be charged the balance of the appointment fee.

If a psychology appointment has been cancelled or re-scheduled by you within 24 hours of the appointment time, the $75 deposit will be retained as a cancellation fee. If a psychiatry appointment has been cancelled or re-scheduled by you within 24 hours of the appointment time, the deposit of (the lesser of) $250 or 50% of the appointment fee will be retained as a cancellation fee.

If you do not attend your appointment with no notice provided (non-attendance of a psychology or psychiatry appointment) your payment card will be charged the full appointment fee (less any deposit paid).

Storage of Credit Card details

Your payment card data will be received and held securely in Tyro’s client portal. Tyro is required to meet the PCI specifications in relation to storing cardholder data, to protect customers’ personal information.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.

To align with this, all of Tyro’s systems will only display the last 4 digits of the card number, and the same rules apply for Tyro’s Customer Support team, who can’t see any additional cardholder information.

For more information about PCI security requirements, the Official PCI Security Standards Council website has multiple resources available, including this FAQ page that may address any queries you have.

By scheduling an appointment with PSYCH2U, you agree to these terms and conditions.
