How often can you get a Mental Health Treatment Plan?
There is no specific limit on the number of Mental Health Care Plans you can receive, but your initial plan should continue over some time. If your doctor believes it is clinically required, like when a significant change occurs, they can work with you on a new plan.
However, this is different to how often you can get Medicare rebated sessions under your Mental Health Treatment Plan; that number resets every calendar year, allowing you to claim for up to 10 sessions with eligible mental health professionals within each calendar year (1 January to 31 December).
