If you have been assessed by your GP as eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan, you will receive a Medicare rebate of $124.50 (maximum 10 sessions per calendar year). Please visit this APS website for further information.

With Katherine’s online claiming facilities, your Medicare rebate can be automatically processed at the time of payment. This takes the hassle out of lodging your claim yourself and will ensure your funds are received sooner.

Should you wish to claim your rebate yourself, there are several options. For full details, please visit the Department of Human Services website. The latest Medicare Express mobile app makes claiming very simple. So long as you set up a myGov account, you can easily claim your rebate directly from your mobile without having to visit a service centre or organise postage. Funds are usually received by your bank within a few days.

Any questions can be directed to Medicare by phoning 132 011.
