A Mental Health Plan without the hassle

Getting a Mental Health Plan has never been more accessible thanks to online appointments.  

Unlike General Practitioners (GPs) face to face who may have waiting times or commutes, online platforms like InstantScripts are now offering online access to discuss a Mental Health Plan online with a GP. This means you can get your Mental Health Plan without further delaying access to psychological support.

You can also access medicare rebates to reduce the out-of-pocket cost for your MHCP session with a valid medicare card. You can only receive one Mental Health Plan every 12 months, which gives you access to a total of 10 Medicare-rebated psychology sessions a year.

With online services like InstantScripts, you can get talking to your online GP the very same day you request your consultation with a 48-hour call back service. Spend less time navigating waiting list and more time working on your mental wellbeing.   

Create an account with InstantScripts to request your online appointment and get your Mental Health Plan and referral letter during your 20-minute video consultation. 

Online appointments for re-referrals

Online appointments are available for both first-time clients and for those looking for a re-referral. If you’ve already taken your initial 6 psychology sessions, you’ll need to get a re-referral to access an additional 4 rebated sessions. 

Unless requested by your GP, you can get your re-referral letter by requesting an online appointment. Your online GP will be able to provide you with the referral letter you need to receive Medicare rebates for your next sessions. 

My Mirror is a partner of InstantScripts and may earn a referral for this service. 

What is a Mental Health Plan?

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.

What do I do once I have my Mental Health Plan?

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.

Why do I need a Mental Health Plan?

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 forward can be helpful for many people.

If you see a Registered Psychologist, you will get back $93.35

If you see a Clinical Psychologist, you will get back $137.05

What are the steps to access rebated sessions?

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: 

  • Initial assessment with your GP for up to 6 sessions with a psychologist.
  • Your GP will provide two documents: a referral letter and a Mental Health Plan. Once you have these documents you can take a picture or scan a copy and upload it into your profile on the My Mirror platform. 
  • Did your GP fax My Mirror these documents? Please create an account and reach out to to have them uploaded on your behalf.
  • After session 5/6, your psychologist will need to write a brief letter to your GP to share your progress and request additional sessions as needed. You will need to book a session with your GP at this time to review your progress. 
  • Once approved your GP will issue a letter to your psychologist to provide access to 4 more sessions. They may provide the letter to you directly ( for you to then upload onto your profile on the My Mirror platform like you did with your initial MHCP and referral document). Check with your GP which option they will take. 
  • We recommend discussing your plan with your psychologist as you get started so they can assist you in keeping on track with your plan and re-referrals as needed.  

How do I find a bulk-billing psychologist?

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.

Am I eligible for bulk-billed online therapy?

We assess all bulk billing applications on a case-by-case basis. During your application, we may consider the following factors:   

  • Whether you’re experiencing financial hardship 
  • The location you live in 
  • Your employment status 
  • Whether you hold a healthcare concession card 
  • Whether you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent 

Remember, regardless of your situation, your bulk billing application can’t be approved unless you have a Mental Health Plan and a referral letter.

How much does it cost to use My Mirror?

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.

Great help

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
