Referrals

Information for clients

If you have a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP you will be entitled to Medicare rebates for up to 10 individual psychological focussed appointments per calendar year. This allows you to be subsidised by Medicare to receive a rebate.

You can’t get Medicare rebates for all the sessions in one go. After your first 6 appointments, you need to see your GP again for a mental health plan review. You will need this review with your GP to access Medicare rebates for further sessions.
