*** It is not necessary to obtain a referral from a GP to see a psychologist; anybody can refer themselves. However, the Medicare initiatives mean that having a referral can make therapy more affordable. If deciding to obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan , it is helpful to tell the doctor’s receptionist that you want a referral to a psychologist as the GP needs a longer period of time to discuss the plan with you. The GP referral must be obtained prior to your first appointment to be eligible to receive the above Medicare rebates.
If you or your family member is unable to attend an appointment, please contact Open Care Psychology via phone, SMS, or email with a minimum of 24 hours notice. A cancellation fee of the full cost of a session are charged to cancellations of less than 24 hours notice.
