As you would be aware, due to current unprecedented events (with COVID19), medicare and all other funding sources are now allowing access to Telehealth services.
What is Telehealth? Telehealth is the provision of health (including mental health) services using services like FaceTime, Zoom or Skype (Video Conferencing) and/or the telephone (Telephone Conferencing) to talk with your psychologist. It can also involve other technologies like mobile phone apps, virtual reality, and online training and treatment programs.
Do I have to use Telehealth? No, this choice is yours. However, currently for Clinical Psychology Victoria we are moving towards an exclusively Telehealth practice due to staff vulnerabilities and community safety. Please contact our reception to discuss your options. Face to Face services will still be provided if you need the mental health treatment and it is not safe for you to use Telehealth over the next 6 or so months.
We will be adding much more to this page over time. Our first step is to provide an online acknowledgment of your consent to engage with Telehealth services. All Telehealth services will have no out of pocket expenses until the end of the COVID19 issue is resolved. We are also asking for your consent for Medicare to be BulkBilled.
