How can I receive a Medicare rebate?
You can choose to go to any psychologist of your choice directly, without a referral. In that case the Medicare rebate does not apply. To receive a Medicare rebate, you can only see a registered psychologist with a Medicare Provider Number to whom you have been referred by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. Your GP will prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan before referring you to a psychologist. The clinical psychologists with All Talk Psychology have a Medicare Provider number and, with a valid referral, the Medicare rebate applies.
Can I ask my GP to see a specific psychologist?
You can ask your GP for a referral to a specific psychologist under the Better Access to Mental Health Care scheme, your GP will take this into consideration but may refer to a registered psychologist that they recommend.
