Frequently Ask Questions
How do I or my child get referred to MindMovers Psychology?
Anyone can join one of the groups or workshops offered by MindMovers Psychology by self-referring, however you will not be eligible for a Medicare rebate by referring this way. To be eligible you must be referred by a GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician with a Mental Health Care Plan. Your GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician will then write a referral letter including yours or your child’s Mental Health Treatment Plan. Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss this further.
How do I become eligible for a Medicare rebate?
You will need to book an appointment to discuss whether you are elibilble for a Mental Health Care Plan with your doctor whether they think you or your child is eligible - only they can determine this. When you have received a Mental Health Care plan you are eligible for the Medicare Rebate for group therapy run by a Psychologist. At MindMovers Psychology the claiming of your account is your responsibility. You may claim a rebate by lodging a claim through Medicare. You need to pay the full amount on or before the first group session and then you can use your MindMovers invoice to claim a Medicare rebate. Private health funds also offer a rebate, but you will need to speak with your health insurance provider to determine how much they will cover.
How do the groups work at MindMovers Psychology?
Each group program that is run at MindMovers is different, however most groups run afterschool for approximately 1 hour. Group times, locations and length will vary, please contact us for more information. However, all groups require an intial assessment by one of our psychologists. The initial assessment is about getting to know you, your child and the difficulties you've been experiencing. Additionally, at MindMovers we like to focus on and celebrate you and your child's strengths, we also love getting to know each child and parent that chooses to join the MindMovers family. At MindMovers we tailor and individualise our programs to suit each child that is joining one of our groups, therefore the initial assessment will involve determing which group program or workshop is the best fit for you and/or your child.
