Services via Telehealth

Telehealth” refers to health services which are not provided in-person but via an audio link and ideally a video link too! Cova Psychology offers telehealth appointments to provide both psychological assessments and treatment sessions to clients . This obviously opens up therapy at Cova Psychology to people located anywhere in Australia.

Telehealth clients have reported that the shift to appointments off-site has been incredibly helpful for many reasons – they can access psychological treatment with greater convenience, time is saved by reducing the need for a commute to our rooms, and therapy can be accessed in the comfort of ones own home environment – to name just a few of these reasons.

Medicare Rebates for Telehealth

As with in-person sessions, Medicare provides rebates on telehealth psychology sessions for all Australians, irrespective of where they are living. Rebates on up to 10 telehealth psychology sessions can be claimed per calendar year. To access rebates through Medicare you must have an eligible mental health condition and referral from a GP, psychiatrist, or paediatrician.
