Q: Is the Enhanced Primary Care referral the same as the Mental Health Care Plan?
No. This is a different referral used for allied health treatment/s. Also known as an EPC referral under item number 10968, it enables you to claim a rebate for a maximum of 5 sessions only per calendar year through Medicare.
The process for obtaining this referral is the same as with the Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP), see question 1.
The rebate under an EPC referral for a 50 minute session is $51.95.
