Clients eligible for receipt of Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) Services by a Psychologist through the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) will receive a rebate of $124 to reduce the fee they pay for the service as is listed in the fee schedule listed by HUM Psychology.
To access the Medicare rebate, clients must meet the eligibility requirements set by Medicare and be referred by a doctor, psychiatrist or paediatrician, eligible clients being assessed as having a mental disorder. Referring practitioners will need to provide a letter to the HUM Psychologist for the client to bring to the intial consultation.
Doctors must also first complete and register a GP Mental Health Care Plan with Medicare (MBS Item No. 2710 or 2712) that indicates the referral to a psychologist for further treatment.
Eligible clients may receive up to 10 consultations per calendar year for which Medicare will pay you a rebate to reduce your HUM Psychology service fee.
Please contact the HUM psychologist by telephoning 0423 428 885 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or your local doctor for further information, if you think you are eligible for the Medicare rebate.
