For participants who are eligible, ADHD WA Group Therapy Programs are offered under Medicare’s Better Access Initiative, namely Group Therapy. To obtain the rebate, participants who are eligible need to provide ADHD WA with specialist referral to the program from their psychiatrist, paediatrician, or a Mental Health Plan and referral from their GP stating the Group Therapy Item Number.
How much is the rebate?
If eligible, the rebate should be a minimum of approx $31 per session attended.
You must supply your referral and Mental Health Care Plan prior to the commencement of the program in order to receive the Medicare Rebate.
A referral must:
1. Include Group Therapy Item Number listed in the course details above
2. Dated before the start date of the program
Note: you do not need a referral to book or participate.
How do I claim the rebate?
For those who have an eligible referral, a receipt per session attended will be emailed to them following attendance at a session. These receipts can be used to claim the Medicare rebate.
Please note that Medicare rebates cannot be claimed for sessions which the member does not attend and it is a Medicare requirement that a minimum of 4 participants attend in order for any participants to get the rebate. We cannot guarantee the rebate due to participant non-attendance should total numbers fall below the minimum requirement of 4.
