TeleHealth video link consultations are now available to both private patients and Medicare Referred patients. Please follow the instructions below.
Private Patients If you choose to pay privately (either as a private patient or Self-Managed NDIS), a referral is not required, and appointments, payments, and establishing the video link can be done using the links below. Please note that all sessions are 30 minutes duration with a fee of $90 which is payable on the day. To get the most from each session, please ensure you are able to establish the video link at the stated appointment time. In order to use the time as efficiently as possible, prior to your first session, you may wish to email a brief summary detailing the reason for the consult and a short history detailing relevant issues.
Medicare Referred Patients The Australian Government has recently introduced Medicare Rebates for Clinical Psychological Services for patients living in rural and remote areas. To access these rebates, you must live in a location which falls within the Monash Modified Model (MMM) Region 4, 5, 6 & 7. The Doctor Connect website contains a searchable online map that can be used to check whether you are within regions MMM4-7. Go to the Doctor Connect website and then enter your postcode. The search will identify the MMM region classifications from MMM1-7. (Please note, it is the patient’s responsibility to check that you meet the criteria to access the Medicare Rebate (If you are ineligible, you will be invoiced as a private patient).
Medicare Referred Patients also require a current Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP), which is available from a General Practitioner or Paediatrician. Please contact your local doctor to discuss this in more detail. A current MHCP must be faxed or emailed to Simon Beal prior to any appointments being made. The fax number is 08 8219 9950, and email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note that every care is taken to ensure the security and confidentiality of information faxed and emailed, however both forms of communication are subject to the normal security issues associated with both – if you have any concerns regarding the confidentiality of any information, please discuss these during your secure video link). As a Medicare Referred patient, you will be bulk-billed – please ensure you have faxed or emailed your MHCP and your Medicare Number prior to any appointment being made.
TeleHealth sessions are exactly the same as clinic-based sessions. Please refer to the other pages on this website for important information regarding appointments and what to expect from your session. When making appointments, please make one appointment booking initially, the need and time-frame for further appointments will be discussed in your initial consult.
