You will need a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) from your GP if you wish to claim back a Medicare rebate on your psychology sessions. Please provide a copy of your MHTP prior to your first appointment. You can also book psychology sessions privately without a referral or MHTP. Some private health funds do cover psychology sessions, but this will depend on your individual cover.
