Bulk Billing Psychiatrists
At PMW, we have a team of experienced bulk billing psychiatrists who are currently welcoming new patients. We strive to keep our waiting list low and offer weekday and weekend appointments.
Bulk Billed Psychiatry Appointments
Currently, all Australians who are living in a remote / regional area are able to access bulk billed psychiatry appointments – meaning that there is no out of pocket cost for your initial assessment and ongoing psychiatry care.
To see one of our bulk billing psychiatrists and receive access to this funding, we first need a referral to our practice from your GP. Once this is received, a member of our reception team will give you a call to book the next available appointment for you and take some additional details such as your Medicare card number.
I Don’t Live in Rural Australia – Can I Still Access Funding
Yes! Australians who do not live in a rural area can still utilise Medicare funding for telehealth psychiatry as Medicare currently provides a rebate for all appointments.
For your initial assessment, there is an out of pocket expense of $200.00 and for all follow-up appointments thereafter, $65.00. To access to this funding, we first need a referral to our practice from your GP.
Once this is received, a member of our reception team will give you a call to book the next available appointment for you and take some additional details such as your Medicare card number.
