Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP) – Medicare Rebates
If you have a Medicare card and have not used your 10 psychology sessions this year, you are likely eligible for medicare rebates. You can access rebates from Medicare by obtaining a GP referral (i.e., a mental health care plan) and bring this with you to your first session with me.
According to the Medicare rules, you cannot get Medicare rebates for all 10 sessions in one go. After the first 6 sessions, you need to see your GP again for a follow up / review and another referral for another 4 psychology sessions with me.
Request a MHCP from your GP and contact me to discuss your referral on 0433 781 919.
Private Health Insurance
If you have private health insurance and are eligible for a rebate from your insurer, rebates and levels of cover may vary. It is best to check with your health insurance fund for the level of psychology coverage.
