Medicare and Private Health Rebates

Our staff are registered with both Medicare and Private Health Insurance companies to enable clients to receive applicable rebates. Currently only individuals whom are deemed to reside in Regional, Rural and Remote locations are eligible for Medicare Rebates for online services (telehealth) under the Better Access to Psychologists – Mental Health Care Plan program based on referral from your doctor. To check if you are eligible based on location, please visit http://www.doctorconnect.gov.au/internet/otd/publishing.nsf/Content/MMM_locator and type in your location.

Areas with a MMM classification of four to seven which incorporate small country towns and remote locations, are eligible for rebates as of November 2017. If you need assistance with checking if you are eligible, give our
office a call on 07 4921 1140. If your location is not eligible, we are still able to offer a service to you, however
services are not eligible for rebate under the Medicare system. In these instances we would recommend using Private Health Rebates Private health rebates are available for all video conferencing sessions and the rebate will be determined by your extras cover with your individual private health insurer. Please check your entitlements with your provider.

Medicare Rebates are provided when the individual is referred to TFD Services by their General Medical Practitioner along with a completed Mental Health Care Plan as part of the Federal Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Services Initiative. Plans are valid for a period of 12 months from the date of referral. Individuals referred by the doctor are eligible for up to 10 rebated appointments per calendar year. The minimum rebate is $84.80 (as at 1 st November 2012), with higher rebates obtainable when the individual or family have passed the Medicare Safety Net in any calendar year.

Processing Rebates: Clients pay the full session fee to TFD Services on day of appointment. Once received, TFD Services will provide you the receipt for claiming with either Medicare or your Private Health Insurer.
– With Medicare Rebates, the receipt can either be lodged online, via their app, or at any Medicare office in Australia. The refund is processed directly into your nominated account.
– With Private Health Insurance, the receipt can be lodged online, via your providers app, or at any branch for your provider. The refund is processed into your nominated account.
