Bulk Billing

Bulk billing permits a person to receive mental health support from a psychologist up to 10 visits per year.  You will need to first ask your GP for a ‘mental health care plan’.  When making an appointment with the GP it is best to state that you need the ‘mental health care plan’ as the receptionist may need to schedule in more time for the GP.

The first plan is typically for six sessions.  At the end of these sessions your psychologist sends a report to the GP.  You may then visit your GP again and they may decide to grant another four sessions.  At the end of four sessions your psychologist sends a report to the GP.

Your GP may give you a copy of the health care plan which you will need to give to your psychologist.  Many GP’s will fax the health care plan to the psychologist directly.
