Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative allows adults and children to access psychological services and receive a rebate from Medicare for up to 10 sessions per calendar year.
To be eligible for a Medicare rebate an individual must be referred by a GP, Paediatrician or Psychiatrist. If referred by a GP, this referral involves the preparation of a GP Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) and may require a longer appointment to be booked. Please ask your GP to email or fax a copy of your referral and MHCP to our Clinic.
If referred by a Paediatrician or Psychiatrist a referral letter under Better Access to Mental Health is to be prepared. Please ask your specialist to email or fax a copy of your referral and MHCP to our Clinic.
Please ensure that you discuss your eligibility with your GP or Specialist prior to booking your appointment with Perth Psychological Services.
