Better Access Initiative Information

The Better Access Initiative aims to increase community access to mental health professionals and team-based mental health care, with general
practitioners encouraged to work more closely and collaboratively with psychiatrists, psychologists and other allied mental health professionals.

It will:
     encourage more GPs to participate in early intervention, assessment and management of patients with mental disorders and streamline
         access to appropriate psychological interventions in primary care
     encourage private psychiatrists to see more new patients
     provide referral pathways for appropriate treatment of patients with mental disorders, including by psychiatrists, GPs, psychologists and other
         allied mental health professionals
     support primary care and specialist mental health workforce with education and training to better diagnose and treat mental illness.


The Better Access initiative has changed Medicare items for GPs providing mental health care. These are now time based:

1. Preparation of a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan (Item 2715/2717) if GP has completed mental health skills training and 2700/2701 if
no training)
Involves the assessment of a patient and preparation of a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan using a structured approach

2. Review of a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan (Item number 2712)
Enables a review of the patient’s progress against the goals outlined in the GP Mental Health Treatment Plan

3. GP Mental Health Care Consultation (Item number 2713)
An extended consultation (at least 20 minutes) with a patient where the primary treating problem is related to a mental disorder
The Better Access initiative also provides GPs with new referral pathways:

      On referral from GPs, psychiatrists and paediatricians, Medicare items are available to provide rebates for psychological assessment and
       therapy services provided by clinical psychologists. Medicare items also cover the provision of focused psychological strategies by
       appropriately trained allied mental health professionals including psychologists, occupational therapists and social workers
      On referral from GPs, Medicare items are available to support psychiatrists to see more new patients. In addition, items 291 and 293 for
       psychiatrists to undertake patient assessment and preparation or review of a management plan to be carried out by the referring GP,
       continue to be available with increased rebates to promote consultation and liaison between GPs and psychiatrists.

Other points to note:

    All GPs can refer patients under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan (Item 2700/2701 or 2715/2717) or psychiatrist assessment and
     management plan (Item 291) through the Better Access initiative.
   GPs are encouraged to complete Level 1 mental health skills training. From the 1st January 2010 a new Medicare item number for GPs who
     have not completed training, 2702. There is online training available (see next page).
   GPs can refer to clinical psychologists, psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists who are registered with Medicare Australia
   Patients who are assessed as having a mental disorder as defined in the MBS are eligible for services under the initiative.
   But the development of a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan does not require GPs to make a referral to any of the above but should be a
     holistic all encompassing treatment plan for an individual.
   GPs are required to document a diagnosis of mental disorder in the GP Mental Health Treatment Plan (Item 2700/2701 or 2715/2717)
   Eligible patients can claim six plus 4 Medicare-subsidised rebates per calendar year for individual psychological services.
How does this initiative relate to the Better Outcomes in Mental Health Care Program?

The increased range of referral pathways (see coloured diagram; Better Access Referral Pathways) complements the range of initiatives funded
under the Better Outcomes in Mental Health Care (BOIMHC) Program. Access by appropriately trained GPs to Medicare items for the delivery of
Focused Psychological Strategies will continue.

Access to Allied Psychological Services (ATAPS) continues to operate (see coloured diagram). Eligible patients can also claim up to six plus six
Medicare-subsidised rebates per calendar year plus a further 6 in exceptional circumstances for individual and group services.

ATAPS is restricted to patients who are experiencing financial hardship, usually a healthcare card holder.
The GP Psych Support Service will also continue to provide a network for GPs to seek patient management advice from a psychiatrist within 24
hours via phone, email or fax.

Which patients are eligible to participate?

The GP Mental Health Care items are for patients with a mental disorder who would benefit from a structured approach to the management of their
care needs. Mental disorder is a term used to describe a range of clinically diagnosable disorders that significantly interfere with an individual’s
cognitive, emotional or social abilities (refer to the World Health Organization, 1996, Diagnostic and Management Guidelines for Mental Disorders in
Primary Care: ICD-10 Chapter V Primary Care Version). The following disorders, taken from the ICD-10 PHC version can be treated under the
Better Access Initiative.

Summary of services offered

The Personal Helpers and Mentors program supports people whose lives are severely affected by a severe mental illness.
The program focuses on strengths – what people with mental illness can do, rather than what they can’t do. The program also
focuses on recovery – demonstrating that people with mental illness can lead a fulfilled life in the community with the same
opportunities as other people.

To be eligible for the program you must be 16 years old and over. A medical diagnosis of a mental illness is not required to
participate in the PHaM program.
