The Answers You Need
Are appointments FREE?
Yes, with a valid referral from your GP (called a Mental Health Care Plan) you will get access to 10 Free (bulk Billed) Psychology sessions each year.
Bulk billing means you don't have to pay for your appointment. Medicare pays your psychologist direct. If you don't have a valid referral, Medicare will not pay for appointments.
Do i need a referral?
Yes. To access medicare bulk billing, you will need a valid referral from your doctor, called a Mental Health Care Plan. A new referral from your doctor is required at the 1st, 7th appointment.
No. You can still have sessions for a fee if you don't have a referral.
Where is the Psychologist located during our Video Telehealth appointment?
Your psychologist is situated in a private and quiet space, either their home office or clinic consulting rooms. Your appointment is treated with the same privacy and confidentiality as would an appointment attended in person at a clinic.
Do I need an internet connection?
To have your appointment via Video, you will need an internet connection on your smart phone or computer.

That's okay! You can continue your appointment over the telephone. Your psychologist will call your mobile if you don't join the Video link.
