Medicare Rebates & Referrals

Medicare Australia have recognised Beth as a Specialist ‘Clinical Psychologist’. The current rebate for a 50 minute consult is $124.50. In order to obtain these rebates, you should consult your General Practitioner (GP) and obtain a referral (known as a Mental Health Treatment Plan). It is often helpful to book a long appointment when you consult your GP.

You can bring the treatment plan and referral letter with you on your first consultation, or alternatively ask your GP to fax the referral prior to your first appointment with Beth. Medicare Australia will pay rebates for 10 sessions in a calendar year (or up to 16 session in exceptional circumstances). You do not need a referral to see Beth if you choose to self-fund or use Private Health insurance.
