Can I claim through Westfund if I'm on a Medicare mental health plan?

A Medicare mental health plan is a treatment plan for a mental health condition. By working with your GP to create the plan, you can get the appropriate support and treatment you need by accessing mental health professionals like psychologists.    

If you have a Medicare mental health plan, you claim up to 20 sessions with a mental health professional each calendar year – however if your clinician charges above the Medicare rebate amount, you may need to pay a gap payment.

We’re unable to pay any additional benefits towards sessions claimed as part of a Medicare mental health plan.
