Medicare

We offer a bulk-billed service to people who are recipients of a Full Centrelink Payment who are eligible for psychological services under the Medicare Better Access Initiative. Medicare rebates allow for up to ten (10) individual and ten (10) group allied mental health services per calendar year to people with an assessment mental health disorder. 

What to do if you think you maybe eligible:
Visit your GP and discuss what you are feeling/experiencing. Your GP will assess your circumstances and mental health needs. They will then discuss with you options which are tailored towards your individual needs. The eligibility to access allied mental health services is for the persons treating mental health practitioner to determine.  

To be eligible their person must then be referred by:
          - A  GP managing the person under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan or
          - Under a referred psychiatrist assessment and management plan or
          - A psychiatrist or pediatrician

It is at the discretion of the persons referring practitioner to determine the number of allied mental health services that they will need.
