Welcome to Princi Consulting
At present, due to COVID-19 restrictiions, Psychological Consultations will continue, temporarily being offered via Telehealth - either by telephone consultations or Face Time or online consultations via Zoom. SMS reminders for your next appointment will be sent as per usual, however, when you reply you will be asked to nominate which method of Telehealth you would prefer. Please note that I will contact you before your sessions begins either by telephone or Face Time or by sending you a link to my Zoom account a few minutes before your session begins. Please also be aware that I may be running a few minutes late, so I apologise in advance and thank you for your patience.
Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP)
As at 30 March 2020, the Australian Government has made Medicare Telehealth available for the whole population. As per usual Medicare requirements, you will be able to use your current Mental Health Care Plan to access Medicare Telehealth rebates - in total 10 sessions per calendar year (the 10 sessions will include the previous face to face sessions and telehealth sessions).
For clients who seek private health rebates, we will send you an invoice by email to be paid via direct debit. Once your invoice has been paid, we will send your paid invoice to you for you to lode with your private health provider. For other private clients, once your session has ended, an invoice will be sent to you by email to be paid via direct debit.
If you need to contact me, please call my usual office number (08) 8338 1171, which is temporarily being directed to my mobile, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As I may be consulting via Telehealth with another client, it may take me a while to get back to you but please rest assured that I will do my best to return your call or email as soon as I can.
However, if the matter is urgent please call your General Practitioner, the WCH for children on 81617000 or for adults the Mental Health Triage on 131 465.
I again thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
