How GPMHCP works: (GPMHCP is by calendar year, the sessions do not rollover it is a maximum of x10 sessions per calendar year)

GPMHCP is written by your General Practitioner which provides you the initial x6 rebated sessions with the therapist. You will need to go back to your GP for a review to access the additional x4 sessions (Total of x10 sessions).

Each referral from the GP must say which sessions they are referring you for –

1st Referral:  x6 Sessions  Initial x6 sessions

2nd Referral:  x4 Sessions  Additional x4 sessions

Please be aware if you are under the care of a psychiatrist being referred to Jo Leidreiter, the referral provided by them does provide access to the MHCP rebates. You will not be required to get a referral from your GP as well.  

Private Health Insurance: If you have private health insurance cover for Psychology, we can claim this on the spot for you leaving only the gap to be paid. Please bring your membership card with you as we cannot make a claim manually entering your number, we are required to swipe your physical card.
