Bulk billing is available for online and phone counselling services during the COVID-19 health crisis.
For services to be bulk billed, you will need a Mental Health Care Plan from your doctor. Bulk billing means that your counsellor receives a direct payment from Medicare for the service they provide, and there is no out of pocket expense or gap fee for you.
Please note: Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, GPs are now able to complete a Mental Health Care Plan referral with you over the phone- all you need to do is call your local GP clinic, and request a telehealth appointment.
Bulk billing is now available for services for all people impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Please discuss your individual circumstances with one of our intake counsellors at Life Supports by calling 1300 735 030.
