A new medicare rebate is set to give more residents in our region access to mental health treatment.
The new teleheath mental health consultations hope to break down barriers for rural residents and healthcare, with seven out of ten sessions available under the medicare rebate program.
Locals who need specialist treatment will be able to access specialist treatments via video conferencing.
The Better Health Access Scheme is now available to patients living in Modified Monash Model regions four to seven.
The news has been welcomed by MP Andrew Broad who says this is a great step towards improving access to medical services across the Wimmera, Mallee, and Mildura regions.
