Do I need a referral from a GP?

No, you do not need a GP referral to access psychological services.  However to claim a Medicare rebate you do need a valid GP Mental Health Care Plan.

Medicare Rebate

With a valid GP Mental Health Care Plan you can access up to 10 sessions in a calendar year.   As of 1 July 2020, the rebate is $87.45

Can I claim a rebate through my private health fund?

Depending on your level of cover you may be able to claim a proportion of your fee with your health fund. It is best to clarify this with your insurer.

Do you accept Insurance Commission WA cases?

Yes!  If you have a valid claim with Insurance Commission WA, Focus Psychology can provide support to cope with and overcome psychological injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident. 

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
