Getting a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) can be a challenge if you are struggling with feeling low or down.
To get a MHCP you need to book an appointment with your regular GP, preferably a double session so you are not rushed when talking about things that are going on for you. Your GP will write you a referral to see a Mental Health Social Worker/counsellor or Psychologist under this plan.
If you come and see Prue Gilligan from Safe Place Therapy and have you a Mental Health Care Plan before your first session you can take your receipt from the session and claim with Medicare and get a refund of $74.50. You are eligible to 10 sessions per year that can be claimed under Medicare.
It is also helpful for the counsellor if you can bring this plan with you and give a copy to your counsellor, this will allow them to stay in contact with her GP and send reviews and updates.
Please email or call us if you have any questions about this process.
