Pacfa submission to the accc 2015.
Registered psychologists being privileged in this regard raises many concerns of an unfair playing field in the mental health arena that most importantly makes accessing counselling, psychotherapy and psychological care more financially difficult for those in need.
We take this as good news as the review panel has concluded that the evidence-base for the effectiveness of these interventions does not need investigation.
We therefore invite you to support the pacfa petition to gain greater access to private health rebates for consumers within Australia, for counselling and psychotherapy from qualified therapists.
Rebates for counselling and psychotherapy should be offered even under budget Extras and Wellness policies as basic cover for mental health should really be seen as essential to health and wellbeing, like basic dental or optical cover Ms Brett said.
The date for completion of the review has been delayed until April 2015.
Ms Brett added When it comes to choosing a therapist, the appropriate type of treatment, or the length of treatment required, a consumers choice will vary greatly depending on their presenting issues, age, temperament, cultural background and geographic location.Recent cut-backs to counselling services under the Better Access Initiative have seen a reduction in access to counselling through Medicare.In 2017, pacfa is making approaches to all Private Health Funds to seek greater recognition for pacfa Registrants through private health rebates for counselling and psychotherapy services.This has been identified as a priority in pacfas 2016-18 Strategic Plan.However we do not support the current system which does not provide adequate rebates for clients seeking psychological treatment from competent counsellors and psychotherapists.This medical paradigm doesnt seem to appreciate the subjectivity of each unique persons suffering the very elements which will be critical to address for deeper, lasting improvements in personality, affect and relational experiences.
