Emily Scanlan is a registered provider with Medicare.
To be able to claim the Medicare rebate, you will need to see your GP to discuss your eligibility.
If suitable, your GP will formulate a General Practitioner Mental Health Treatment Plan (GPMHTP).
When the GP registers you with Medicare for the GPMHTP, you may request the psychologist of your choice.
Alternatively, the GP can refer you to a psychologist he or she recommends.
You may be entitled to a rebate for up to 10 sessions in a calendar year. This requires 6 initial sessions, followed by a review with your GP regarding your progress. The doctor will then decide if you need for an additional 4 sessions.
The current rebate for a 50+ minute session with a psychologist is $84.80
