Under the Better Access initiative, financial support is given to individuals who need to access mental health services.
A Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) is developed by your GP, Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician, if they agree that engaging with additional support may assist you with a “diagnosed mental disorder”. This MHCP may include referral to a Psychologist which allows a rebate for up to 10 individual sessions and 10 group sessions per year.
A referral from your GP, Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician is only needed if you wish to claim Medicare rebates.
You are welcome to engage without a referral letter if you are planning to fund your sessions privately.
If you provide us with a valid referral letter from your GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician, we will process a Medicare rebate for you, immediately after you have paid for your session in full. The Medicare rebate is usually back in your nominated bank account within a couple of hours.
For a Psychologist with general registration, Medicare will rebate $89.65 per session, to a maximum of 10 individual and 10 group therapy sessions per year. Contact Medicare for further information on your individual circumstances, or our admin team by email for any clarification.
Medicare’s rules mean that a maximum of 6 sessions are able to be used on a referral to a Psychologist. This means that after 6 individual or group sessions, you will need to consult with your referring doctor to discuss continued therapy, and a new referral letter to continue accessing Medicare rebates.
