Under Medicare, the government will subsidise 10 individual sessions every calendar year. This means that for every session under a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP), the rebate of $86.15 comes off the total fee. The gap that you must pay is $88.85.
How do you obtain a MHCP
Please visit you GP for a referral and you will be assessed whether you eligible. Usually, this assessment requires you to book a double appointment with your doctor.
For the GP
There are two ways you may proceed after you issue a MHCP and referral letter to your patient:
- Fax the documentation directly to the practice and your patient will be called (within 48 hours) for an appointment;
- Give the documentation to your patient and they can then contact the practice directly for an appointment.
