Want to know more about the MBS Mental Health Services?

The Department of Human Services has a NEW eLearning module for eligible medical practitioners that support patients with mental health services. 

This exciting new eLearning module ‘Access to mental health services for eligible medical practitioners’ provides information relating to the use of Mental Health Services under the MBS.

The module supports the Better Access initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to improve treatment and management of mental illness within the community by providing access to mental health professionals and team-based mental health care. Under this initiative, Medicare benefits are payable to patients for selected mental health services provided by:

  • General practitioners (GPs)
  • Non vocationally recognised medical practitioners (non-VR MPs)
  • Psychiatrists
  • Clinical psychologists
  • Registered psychologists, and
  • Appropriately trained social workers and occupational therapists.

The new module is part of the Primary care items eLearning program, which contains 4 other modules about attendance basics, targeted MBS Primary care items, Telehealth and Access to mental health services for allied mental health professionals.

The eLearning module is supported by a quick reference education guide ‘Better Access to mental health care for eligible practitioners and allied health professionals’
