More Info: Medicare Billing scheme with a GP's Referral
               
Under the Mental health care plan any Australian Medicare card holder may ask their GP for a referral to a Psychologist
- for counselling services.
Your doctor will then give you a referral (under the Mental Health Care plan) which is valid for
10 sessions in every calendar yearReview after each 10 sessions (can be done by calling GP). Fees are billed for you to Medicare and clients pay a Gap Fee.                                                   

When the doctor makes the first referral s(he) will go thru’ a standard form of questions like:
  1. Are you stressed, anxious?

  2. Do you feel depressed, down?

  3. How is your sleep?  etc…

Typically clients come to talk to me about:

  1. Relationship issues/challenges.

  2. Work, career issues/challenges.

  3. Life changes, health challenges.

  4. Personal development issues.
So, for your appointment: See the doctor first and bring along the referral + your Medicare card.  Note the Gap Fee payable - as above.
