On 1 November 2006, the Australian Government introduced new Medicare items for psychological treatment by registered psychologists. This service provides considerable assistance to people living with mental health problems. It allows them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable mental healthcare.
Under the new Medicare scheme, all registered psychologists who are endorsed by Medicare Australia can provide treatment for mental health problems.
You must be referred by your GP, your Psychiatrist or Paediatrician. Your GP will need to complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Care Plan before referring you to a psychologist. You should book a longer session with your GP to enable time for this.
Cancellations and no-shows
You will not be charged a fee for cancelling a scheduled appointment, provided you give at least 2 hours notice. You will be charged 100% of your ordinary fee if you do not show up to a scheduled appointment without notifying the clinic.
