On 1 November 2006, the Australian Government introduced new Medicare items for psychological treatment by registered psychologists. This service provides considerable assistance to people living with mental heath problems, allowing them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable mental healthcare. All registered psychologists who are endorsed by Medicare Australia can provide treatment for mental health problems.
Rebates are available for psychological services under the Medicare Benefits Scheme on referral from a General Practitioner. In 2021, clients with a Mental Health Care Plan from their GP are entitled to 20 rebated sessions within the calendar year.
