Bloomfield Psychology provides a variety of services from individual counselling, coaching, supervision to group training programs. You can refer yourself to our service or access the services from a referral from your GP with a Mental Health Care Plan to access Medicare rebates. You can claim from Private Health Insurance, Workers' Compensation Insurance or Third Party Insurance or via an Employee Assistance Program.
You can access our services directly without a referral if you feel that talking to a psychologist would help you in your current situation in your personal life or at work.
If you are currently dealing with a problem that you believe we can help, discuss it with your GP, Psychiatrist or Pediatrician. Ask your Doctor if he/she will do an initial Mental Health Care Plan assessment to establish if it is appropriate for you to be referred to a psychologist. With a Mental Health Care Plan, you are eligible for a Medicare rebate ($124.65) for 1 hour psychological counseling session for up to 10 sessions in the following 12 months of being issued. Under exceptional circumstances you may be eligible for 16 sessions per year.
If you attend a counseling group where 6 members or more have a Mental Health Care Plan, then Medicare offers you a rebate ($37.20) per group session, for up to 10 sessions per calendar year in addition to your individual sessions.
