Do I need a Referral?
Psychologists will see anyone who wants assistance to change their lives. A referral is not necessary unless you wish to make a Medicare claim.
If you would like to access Medicare benefits you need to see your General Practitioner for a mental health care plan and request a referral to see a Psychologist under the Better Access Initiative. This will entitle you to a maximum of 10 rebated sessions with a psychologist per calendar year.
If you are in a private health fund you may also receive some rebate.
HICAPs and Eftpos facilities are available so your rebate can be claimed on the spot.
