For in-person sessions at consulting rooms

If referred by your GP under a Mental Health Care Plan, you can claim $128.40 per standard session at the consulting rooms from Medicare for up to 20 sessions per calendar year. This leaves a gap fee of $86.60 per session. You can also claim these rebates if you are referred by a Psychiatrist and can provide a referral letter. Your rebate can be claimed on the day from our practice (no going into the Medicare office!).

For telehealth sessions

The government expanded telehealth Medicare items in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including sessions via video teleconference. If referred by your GP under a Mental Health Care Plan, you can claim $128.40 per standard session at the consulting rooms from Medicare for up to 20 sessions per calendar year. This leaves a gap fee of $86.60 per session. You can also claim these rebates if you are referred by a Psychiatrist and can provide a referral letter.
