Our registered practitioners are registered as Medicare service providers, and are also qualified to meet Worksafe, DVA and TAC clients.
Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment by registered practitioners under the Australian Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. This scheme provides considerable assistance to people living with mental health problems, allowing them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable mental health care.
Under the scheme you can only see a registered practitioner with a Medicare Provider Number who you have been referred to by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician.
