Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment with registered psychologists with a Medicare provider number. In order to obtain Medicare rebates you must have a referral from your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician along with a Mental Health Treatment Plan, most GP’s require a longer appointment to complete this.
Under the Australian Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative you are eligible for Medicare rebates for up to 10 sessions per calendar year (January 1st to December 31st). You will require a review with your GP after the 6th session. Rebates are claimed by each client directly with Medicare.
