Medicare rebates are available with a mental health care plan.

Obtaining a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP)

Schedule a double appointment with your GP to obtain a mental health care plan. This will give you access to ten Medicare rebated psychology sessions per calendar year. Currently the rebate amount is $89.65 per session. Therefore the Zoom Psychology session fee of $150 AUD reduces to $60.35 AUD. A GP review is required after six psychology sessions to access the remaining four psychology sessions.

Claiming Medicare Rebates

To claim your Medicare rebate, download the Medicare app from the App Store or Google Play and upload your receipt. Medicare typically deposits your rebate into your bank account within three days.
