As human beings, our primary emotional need is for connection. Yet, often our experiences in rural communities can be quite isolating. We may live in a very isolated area and our communities are small, so we can feel embarrassed about people knowing about our difficulties.
Connecting with one of our therapists can really make a difference. Finding understanding and support from someone outside of our community can allow us to gain insights and see our experiences from a different perspective, without feeling judged.
At Rural Help we provide a variety of psychological solutions for entrenched issues. Even when you don’t believe there is anyone that can understand or help you feel differently about your situation, our therapists can assist you to come to a different perspective. We do our utmost to ensure that you can achieve not only the remission of mental health concerns, but truly reach a greater sense of wellbeing.
Our Recent WIN News Segment about Rural Help
Due to COVID-19, there are no location restrictions on online sessions. This means that you no longer need to be in an MMM 4-7 area to receive rebates.
Our psychologists are registered to provide services under the Commonwealth Government's 'Better Outcomes in Mental Health Care' Program.
This means that individual and group sessions are eligible for a Medicare rebate. If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP, Psychiatrist or Pediatrician, you can currently claim back $87.45 from Medicare for a maximum of ten sessions per calendar year.
Your psychologist will provide a progress report to your referring doctor after the agreed sessions are completed.
Private Health Insurance
You may elect to use your private health insurance. The rebate will depend on your health fund and your level of cover. To find out more information about what mental health services your health insurance policy covers, please contact your health insurer directly.
You may be eligible for psychological therapy if you have a Worker's Compensation or Compulsory Third Party claim.
You will need to discuss suitability for psychological therapy with your GP and/or insurance claims manager. Therapy Online must have approval from your insurer in writing before we are able to provide services for an insurance claim.
We will need this information in advance to enable us to bill your insurance company directly.
NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their capacity to take part in everyday activities. If your NDIS funding is self-managed, or managed by a third party, we are able to provide services to you.
