Referrals

You do NOT need a referral to see a Psychologist.

However, with an appropriate referral you may be able to claim a Medicare rebate under the Better Access Initiative. The Better Access Initiative allows for 10 (6+4) sessions. Another 10 COVID sessions were made available by the government in 2020.

In order for Medicare to process your claim the referral letter must have the following:

  • Patient’s name, address, date of birth
  • Mental health diagnosis - for example anxiety, depression.
  • Addressed to a named Psychologist or ‘The Psychologist’
  • GP referrals only: Make mention of or include a Mental Health Care Plan.
  • Number of appointments requested.

Telehealth

Jeroen’s preference is Telehealth consultations. The benefit of telehealth is that you can talk to Jeroen from the comfort of your own home without the need for a facemask.
