Medicare allows eligible individuals to access a rebate for psychological services through the Better Access to Mental Health Care scheme. Under this scheme a referral may be provided by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. They will assess your eligibility for a Mental Health Care plan.

Your ability to access a rebate from a private health insurer will depend on your level of cover and any specific requirements of your health insurer. We recommend that you check with your health fund to determine the specific details of your cover.
Please note you can only claim rebates through either Medicare or your private health insurer for any one session.
