Mental Health

What if I don’t get a Mental Health Treatment Plan after my consultation?

A rebated Mental Health Treatment Plan can only be issued to patients with a valid Medicare card at the discretion of the treating Doctor. If you are not issued a plan, the Doctor will give you their reasons for not doing so and suggest alternatives for your care. 

If you believe this is not the best outcome for your care, ensure you have a conversation with your doctor about why you believe a rebated Mental Health Treatment Plan would meet your needs. 

If you don’t have a valid Medicare card, the Doctor can still consult with you about a plan for your mental health, that doesn’t include rebated sessions. You can see the pricing for our private services on our mental health page and, as a guide for private psychology fees, you can also check out the pricing table from our online psychology partner, Recharge Wellness.* 

If ongoing costs are an issue, your Doctor may be able to guide you on low-cost or free mental health services provided by community organisations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), or public mental health clinics. 

If you’re in crisis or feeling unsafe, please call 000 or Lifeline on 13 11 14.
