MEDICARE: MENTAL HEALTH CARE PLANS //
As a Medicare Provider, I accept clients who have Mental Health Care Plans from their GP.
Talk to your GP about your eligibility for a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). A MHCP is prepared by a GP in a long-consultation and with a letter of referral allows you to access a rebate for up to 10 sessions with a clinical psychologist every calendar year at $126.50 per session.
Alternatively, your psychiatrist can write you a letter of referral and this letter of referral grants you a rebate per session of $126.50 for up to 6 sessions.
If you live in rural or remote areas of Australia you may be able to access Medicare rebates for Telehealth sessions. If you think this might apply to you, please be in touch with me to discuss this further.
MEDICARE: NON-DIRECTIVE PREGNANCY COUNSELING //
Medicare offers 3 rebateable sessions with a psychologist if you’re pregnant or have had a pregnancy in the last 12 months. These sessions are to support you with issues arising around your pregnancy. Talk to your GP about your eligibility for a referral for Non-directive pregnancy counseling. The rebate for these sessions is $63.20 per session.
PRIVATE EXTRAS: PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE //
If you have extras cover, you may also be eligible for rebates with your private health insurer. Please be in touch with your insurer to discuss this further.
