Rebates

Psychological services are covered by MEDICARE when referred by a psychiatrist or by a general practitioner who assesses you to be eligible for a mental health care plan. Referrals are only required if you wish to claim from medicare.

Clients with a mental health care plan can have up to 10 individual services AND up to 12 group therapy services per calendar year. People concerned about pregnancy are entitled to 3 individual sessions and those with issues about a chronic illness can have 5 individual sessions.

See the Medicare Benefits Schedule fees and rebates for psychology items.

Most PRIVATE HEALTH FUNDS provide rebates for psychological services.
