You do not need a referral to see a Psychologist or an OT, however you will not receive any rebate for your consultation. If you obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) from your GP you will be eligible to receive a rebate of $87.45 from Medicare. You are eligible to receive a rebate for up to 10 individual sessions per calendar year. This varies with OT therefore it is best to check with our admin.
If you wish to enquire further about referrals or whether psychology or Occupational Therapy is right for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us via our webpage, email or give us a call. We’re only too happy to answer any questions you have.
