Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP)

If you have a mental health plan from your doctor, you are eligible to receive a Medicare rebate of $93.35 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year (January through December). Additional rebates may be available through private health insurers. 

How to obtain a
Mental Health Care Plan


Book and attend an in-person or Telehealth appointment with your doctor and request a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). 


Ask the Medical Centre to send us the MHCP via fax or ask for a copy of your MHCP and provide this document to our practice. 


You will then be entitled to 6 rebatable sessions with a psychologist. After using them, if you and your psychologist believe you need more sessions after this, proceed to step 4.


Make another appointment with your doctor to discuss eligibility for a new referral. If they agree there is a need for more sessions, you will then be entitled to more sessions.
