Referral is usually via your doctor (GP) or psychiatrist, but you can also self-refer.
Request a long consultation with your GP to complete a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) so that you are eligible for a Medicare rebate. Keep in mind, that your safety net threshold may significantly reduce the cost. Private health rebates may apply – check with your health care fund.
Consultation fee is usually $280 per 60-minute session.
Please call or email to see if you are eligible for other schemes such as DVA, Open Arms, EAP (Employee Assistance Schemes) or similar supports.
