Information for Referrers

 

Information for GPs

Patients may now be referred under the Medicare Better Access to Psychology Scheme.

This will enable them to access up to 6 sessions with a significant rebate if they have a referral to a psychologist under a GP Mental Health Care Plan (item 2710).

If a further allocation of 4 sessions is required this is accessed via Review of a GP Mental Health Care Plan (item 2712). A maximum of 10 sessions per calendar year may be accessed (not dependant on date of referral).

Although we do not offer bulk-billed services, we charge a minimal gap fee for health care card holders.
