How to make referals:
GP or Psychiatrist Referral
Please enclosed a cover letter that includes a brief description of your patientand a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP). Please indicate if you are referring under Better Access.
Medicare’s Better Access Inititative Fact Sheet for Clients
Medicare makes it clear that their session limit is from 1 January to 31 December, thus on the 1st of January each year, the number of sessions a client has resets. This can be confusing as a referral from a GP or Psychiatrist can last for up to 12 months. The important section here is “up to”. A GP/Psychiatrist can write a new referral within 12 months if the sessions have been used and it is a new year.
“In a calendar year, patients can receive psychological therapy and/or FPS services up to the limit of: 10 individual services & 10 group services.
A calendar year is from 1 January to 31 December. “[Link to further information]
