A referral is not necessary to make an appointment. However, if you wish to access the Medicare rebate, a GP will have to determine if you are eligible for a GP Mental Health Plan. Please bring this Plan to your first appointment.
Medicare rebates for psychological treatment are available under the Australian Government's Better Access to Mental Health initiative. You can access rebates for up to ten sessions per calendar year.
Private Health rebates can be claimed without a referral. Please contact your Private Health Insurer for details about your level of cover for psychological services.
