Clients can self-refer or be referred by a health professional or organisation.
New clients undertake an intake appointment for triage purposses and to determine the most suitable clinician for their presentation. Intake appointments do not incur a fee and are generally completed over the phone (30 minutes).
Currently GP's can prepare a MHCP for an eligible client, for an initial six (6) sessions with a psychologist. If further sessions are required, a GP can review the plan and request a further four (4) sessions with a psychologist. Overall clients with a MHCP are eligible for ten sessions with a psychologist per calendar year.
NB: Medicare Rebates only apply to clients with a MHCP seeing a Psychologist. If you are attending appointments with a Provisional Psychologist or Therapy Assistant/Counsellor, our fees have already been adjusted to reflect that Medicare rebates do not apply.
