More great news - the Government has extended the number of Medicare sessions available under a standard Mental Health Care Plan from 10 to 20 sessions per calendar year!! Hooray!! This really comes as welcome relief for so many people.
This means, for the rest of 2020 you're entitled to 20 sessions, and it will all reset in January 2021 when you'll be eligible for a further 20 sessions with an up to date MHCP.
Keep in mind that if you're registered for the Medicare Safety Net, once you spend a certain amount per calendar year, Medicare will give you a higher rebate for the rest of the year once you've reached your threshold. This is very helpful when you're seeing a psychologist regularly as it helps to reduce your out of pocket expenses.
This is recalculated at the beginning of the year. You can read more about Medicare Safety Nets here:
