Rebates & Referrals
Medicare rebates are available, however a GP referral is necessary. To obtain a Medicare rebate you will need to obtain a Mental Health Care Plan and referral from your GP. Otherwise, if you have a treating psychiatrist, she or he can provide a general referral letter. If you haven’t yet obtained a referral, we may be able to recommend General Practitioners in the local area whom we already work with.
Please check with your private health insurance fund to see if counselling is covered. This especially applies to Skype and phone counselling which are only eligible for Medicare rebates if you live in certain rural or remote areas.
