    I was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy it was

    If you go with a psych you need a referral from your doctor to them. A few of us ladies went through GP2U and used dr Vincent leow. Once the psych emails you the report and letter, you then take it to your gp and get to them to fill out a new form word for word. Then upload your forms and quotes on the ATO website for approval. Hope this helps
    Hi

    Thank you for your reply. I think I’ll just go with Supercare because I have no idea what the forms need to say and I’m confused as to who actually fills out the form if your fs fills it out then what does the gp fill out? It’s stressful but thank you anyway

    So both your gp and fs or psych fill out the forms. You have to have two separate forms filled out. If you get yourself a referral to a psych from your gp, you’ll only be paying for a psych and not supercare as well. You’ll be saving yourself money by not using super care. Besides you’ll still be doing all the leg work even if you do pay supercare. If your fs agrees to fill out form they’ll need to tick the acute pain/mental illness box. You can also ring the ATO, if you have any questions about filling out the form

    1. Get a referral from gp for psych
    2. Make appointment for psych and you’ll prob do a Skype app, they’ll fill out the form and email it to you
    3. Take that form to gp and get them to write word for word on a separate form what psych wrote.
    4. Get quotes from fs
    5. Upload document on the ATO website in mygov. Simply follow the prompts. It’s really easy. There’s plenty of ladies here who’ve been through it and if you get stuck, we can answer your questions

    The ATO hasn’t changed anything.
    It is just been a lucky few that have gotten through with their applications. A registered specialist for acute or chronic mental illness is a psychiatrist.

    Extract from their website
    ”If you are applying to pay for medical treatment or transport expenses you must provide two separate reports. One must be from a registered medical specialist and the other can be from either a registered medical practitioner or a registered medical specialist, advising that you or your dependant requires treatment for:
    *a life threatening illness or injury
    *acute or chronic pain
    *an acute or chronic mental illness.

    The registered medical specialist must be specialised in the field of treatment for the patient.“

    Hi there,
    I rang them when I first heard you could use a fs to fill out the report and they told me they had changed it! I was advised that you could use your fs if they were comfortable with filling in the report and that a psych wasn’t required. The fs still needed to tick the acute box and put in a reason. If you read above plenty of ladies have used their fs. Unfortunately mine wasn’t comfortable with filling out, so I had to re use my psych.. I always say if ladies aren’t sure then ring the ATO.. hope this helps you, I know what the website says, that’s why I rang for confirmation
