Hi MsMummy, my name is Rahul and I work at the Australian Government Department of Human Services in a team that responds to enquiries about Medicare benefits on social media sites like this one.
With your first question, if you've reached a Medicare Safety Net threshold, you may be eligible for additional Medicare benefits - for out-of-hospital Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) services - for the remainder of the calendar year.
If you're eligible for Medicare Safety Net benefits, the additional amount is paid automatically at the time the claim is paid.
With your question on psychology services, a Medicare Safety Net benefit is payable for out-of-hospital MBS services, providing the account is paid in full. There's more info on this below:
To discuss your individual circumstances further though, it'd be a good idea to call us on 132 011.
Hope that helps
