Am I eligible for a Medicare rebate?

Medicare offers funding for psychological services under their ‘Better Access’ program. GP’s can refer eligible patients to a psychologist for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. The referral lasts for 12 months and we suggest you book a long consult to see your GP so they can complete the Mental Health Care Plan paperwork required. Just bring your letter of referral and your Care Plan along with your Medicare Card to receive the rebate. Rebates can be processed for you at your session via our HICAPS/ EFTPOS machine.
