Covid-19 and Telehealth
From 6th April to 30th September 2020 all Australians eligible to receive services under Medicare will be able to access psychological services delivered via telehealth (i.e., video conference or phone) if clinically appropriate. This means you can use your Mental Health Care Plan to access appointments from home. Clients in Covid hotspot areas may access additional sessions after they have used their 10 MHCP sessions.
