Medicare Mental Health services 


including phone and video Telehealth counselling

 

are available 


for those with a GP Mental Health Care Plan. 


Three steps:


1.) If you don't already have a GP Mental Health care plan, you will need to speak to your medical practice about 

the availability of a phone (or in-person) consultation with a GP, to arrange for a GP Mental Health Care Plan 


Telehealth Video Consultations (or telephone where access to Telehealth is not available) 

are available with me for all clients (i.e. people over the age of 16)


2.) Once you have a GP Mental Health Care plan it can be faxed to me, 

with your Medicare Card details  on (08) 9463 6378, or your GP can send it via Secure Messaging, 

to ARGUS: [email protected]  or HEALTHLINK: lrh-dale

NEW INFORMATION FROM THE AUSTRALIAN PSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY 

Updated to take effect from 20/4/2020:

"The Federal Minister for Health has announced that from Monday 20 April, all of the mandated bulk billing restrictions on the Medicare items for COVID-19 telehealth services will be removed, for all psychologists. 

This means that it is no longer a requirement that psychologists bulk bill for services provided to clients 

aged under 16 years of age, concession cardholders, clients vulnerable to COVID-19, or any other group.”
