Take the hassle out of travelling to your GP for an appointment and get your Mental Health Plan online instead.
Even better, you won’t have to wait weeks to get your appointment or fit a trip to the doctor’s office around your busy schedule. Simply request a consultation online and get your Mental Health Plan from the comfort of your own home.
A Mental Health Plan is collaboratively put together by you and your doctor and sets out a clear roadmap for your mental health recovery. It often includes therapy as a treatment solution and is personalised to you and your needs.
You need a Mental Health Plan in order to access Medicare-rebated psychology services.
Once you get your Mental Health Plan online, you can upload it to your My Mirror account along with your referral letter and Medicare details.
From there, you’re ready to find the right psychologist for you and your goals using our matching tool, and get your first session booked in.
Your online doctor can recommend you a psychologist during your appointment, or they can include My Mirror on your referral letter if you let them know you’re considering online therapy with us.
You need a Mental Health Plan if you want to access bulk-billed or reduced-cost psychology services like online therapy.
In addition to the Medicare benefits, a Mental Health Plan is important because it helps you get your mental health concerns addressed by a healthcare professional. Having your concerns written out clearly, with a positive strategy on how to move forwards can be really helpful for many people.
If you see a Registered Psychologist, you will get back $92.90
If you see a Clinical Psychologist, you will get back $136.35
As everyone’s mental health journey is different, it is up to you to keep track of your Mental Health Plan and make sure it is up to date to access your rebates. To help make this as easy as possible we have broken down the path to rebated sessions.
Your referral will not provide access to all 10 eligible sessions at once. You will have regular referral check-ins with your GP to top up your plan and check in on your progress. This pathway looks like this:
My Mirror is proud to offer bulk-billed psychology sessions for eligible clients. Once your bulk bulling application has been approved, our team will inform you on which bulk billing psychologists are available to take your session. From there, you can select your preferred psychologist and book your appointment to secure your session.
We assess all bulk billing applications on a case-by-case basis. During your application, we may consider the following factors:
Remember, regardless of your situation, your bulk billing application can’t be approved unless you have a Mental Health Plan and a referral letter.
You can access both private and Medicare rebated psychology services at My Mirror. We are committed to providing a percentage of our sessions bulk billed to those who are eligible.
If you aren’t eligible for bulk-billing, you may still be able to receive reduced-cost therapy sessions through Medicare rebates, meaning you’ll only have to pay the gap fee. This is available to eligible clients who have a Medicare card, a Mental Health Plan and a GP referral letter.
Tele-tech sessions eliminate travel and wait times, it simplifies the whole process. Booking an online appointment is super easy, and low-cost, which is also really appealing.
I was able to book in almost immediately and was really grateful to be matched with a psychologist who suited both my situation and personality.
I live in a regional area with very little resources available for mental health. My Mirror was a great help and were super quick with any questions including how to add my mental health plan. Great work Mirror team
