You may be eligible for a Medicare rebate, you will need to discuss your mental health concerns with your GP, who will let you know if this is the case.
Mental Health Care Plans do take some time to complete, so when you make your appointment with your Doctor, it is important to let the receptionist know that you will need a longer appointment.
Your GP will give you a referral called “Mental health Care Plan”, along with a letter of referral, which entitles you to a Medicare rebate. You will need to bring this with you to your first consultation.

Many Private Health Insurers offer rebates for Psychological Services. Please contact your Health fund, to find out if they participate and the amount they rebate.
It is not essential that you have a GP referral to see a Psychologist. You may make an appointment at any time and come to see me privately.
