Hi @Tiggeroo, In regard to psychologists and Better Access, the limit is 10 sessions (6 plus an extra 4 if the psych feels it's necessary and the GP does more paperwork). Still not enough and we've paid for extra. There's also a point where medical expenses become tax deductable. It's a relatively large amount and we did reach it one year (paying for medical procedures). Plus there used to be a cap on pharmaceutical costs once a limit was reached, not sure about now. $400 per psych session is a large amount. We asked around and there was a big variation in fees, eventually found a bulk-billing psychiatrist who has been very good.
