Telehealth at Cova Psychology

Psychological Services via Telehealth (videoconference) for People Living in Rural, Remote Australia

Although Cova Psychology is located in the CBD of Melbourne, our services may be accessed through telehealth by those Australian’s living in rural areas.  Telehealth is when psychological assessment and treatment is provided via communication using both an audio and visual connection. If you live in a rural area, access to psychological services may be limited, or you may be concerned about your privacy and wish to receive psychological treatment outside your community. 


Medicare rebates

Telehealth sessions are not bulk billed, though Medicare can offset the cost of sessions significantly. To be eligible for these services through Medicare you must:

  • Have an eligible mental health condition and referral from a GP, psychiatrist, or paediatrician
  • Live in an eligible rural, remote, or very remote location
  • To find out if you live in area that is eligible for telehealth through Medicare click here to search the Health Workforce Locator. Search your area by clicking on “RRMA (rural, remote, metropolitan areas)” and then search your area to see how it is classified.


If you do not live in a rural location and are considering whether to access treatment via telehealth, give us a call and we can explore this option with you.
