More about Rebates

Medicare rebates are available for a maximum of 10 individual and 10 group sessions annually, if you have a referral under a mental health care plan from your GP or Psychiatrist.

Please note: Gap payments will contribute to your Medicare safety net total. Your gap payment will be significantly less if you have reached your family safety net threshold. See …… to find out how your costs can be reduced.
