How to obtain a
Mental Health Care Plan
Attend a session with the GP of your choice and request a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). Mention your psychologist's details in the appointment with your GP.
Ask for a copy of your MHCP and provide this document to our practice. Or ask your GP to provide this to us on your behalf.
You will then be entitled to 6 rebatable sessions with your psychologist. If you and your psychologist believe you need more sessions after this, proceed to step 4.
Request a REVIEW from your GP. If they agree there is a need for more sessions, you will then be entitled to more sessions. Once you have had these sessions, again you can repeat step 4.
