In order to claim your rebate, your GP will need to complete a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) with you and refer you to our clinic with a referral letter.

After attending 6 sessions, you will need to visit your referring GP again to determine if more sessions are required. Your GP may refer you for another 4 sessions.

Once these 10 sessions are completed, people experiencing severe or enduring mental health impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic can access an extra 10 sessions under the Better Access Initiative. This will be available until 30 June 2022.

The fee for additional support letters to third parties is $70. Please check if your requested document(s) incur any fees.

 

Please let us know at least 1 business day* prior to your appointment if you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment. The fee for nonattendance or cancellations with less than 1 business day's notice is $100.

When notice is not given for a missed appointment, it results in another patient missing out on a possible appointment. If a cancellation is due to an illness or other inevitable circumstances, it is at the clinician’s discretion whether the cancellation fee applies. Please be advised that Medicare and Private Health Insurance funds will not offer a rebate for any cancellation fees incurred.

* If your appointment is booked for a Monday, please advise us on the Friday of the week beforehand if you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment.
