MVS Psychology Group are committed to providing quality psychological care, in any and every situation. We have risen to the challenge presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and are here to help you, when you need it most! Social distancing calls for less movement and greater isolation. However, this does not mean that your mental health should suffer.
The COVID-19 pandemic presents a unique challenge to the way health services are delivered. Digital consultations are the new normal for many patients who are in isolation and even quarantine.
We are available online
Psychological therapy is available to you via telehealth. This means that you can still see your existing psychologist via the web, or even start a new course of therapy, all online and from the comfort of your home or office.
Sessions are conducted online. All platforms below are secure and very simple to use. We recommend one of the following:
If you prefer another means, please get in touch with us. We would be happy to speak with you and find a solution that best meets your needs.
How telehealth works
The process is simple. For Zoom consultations, simply follow the link emailed to you. You may be asked to download an app (if on your smartphone) or a program (if on a computer) and will then be given a unique and secure ID for the meeting. You will be emailed step-by-step instructions prior to your consultation.
For FaceTime and other platforms, it is often the case of answering the video call when this is made.
If you have any questions about the process, please feel most welcome to get in touch with us on (03) 8375 9642 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Simply get in touch with us by email or phone. All that we require is a referral from your treating GP if you wish to claim under Medicare, otherwise we can see you without a referral.
Medicare rebates and private health insurance
Medicare provide the usual rebates for all services delivered online. This is fantastic news and means that you can receive a rebate of $126.50 for up to 10 sessions towards the cost of your consultation with an eligible Mental Health Care Plan provided by your referring GP or psychiatrist. If you have private health insurance, most private insurers now cover telehealth. However, please get in touch with your provider to clarify your cover.
