IPS is pleased to announce that Skype, Zoom or FaceTime consultations are now availabe to ALL Australian citizens. IPS provides this service on a Bulk Bill basis during these challenging times.
To make an appointment for a Skype, Zoom or FaceTime consultation there are 2 easy steps:
1) you must obtain a GP Mental Health Referral so that the Medicare rebate will be available. At the presesnt time ALL video consults are bulk billed.
2) You must contact the IPS office using firstname.lastname@example.org at least 1 week prior to your requested session. 5 - 10 mins before your scheduled appointment you will be called and the type of platform that you will use in the appointment will be discussed.
There are only a limited number of Video sessions available so if you are interested in this service please contact IPS soon.
With regards to accessing the technology that IPS utilises in its therapy approach, some technology can be provided to you on a rental basis and sent to your home by mail. It is however suggested that to provide the greatest benefit from the technology that an appointment be set for a face-to-face consult at 1 of the 2 Medical Centres that IPS operate from.
