The Role
You will be providing bulk-billed teletherapy to clients over your choice of video and/or audio calls.

We are looking for psychologists who will utilise strong evidence-based therapies only.

You will be working as an independent proprietor/sole trader so you will need your own ABN. 

Remote Therapy will provide the following:

  • Receptionist services 5 days a week to act as a point of contact between you and your clients and referrers
  • Marketing services to ensure your schedule is always filled
  • Payment processing and Medicare claiming
  • Tutorials for the calendar and telehealth software + training and support from the reception staff
  • A peer consultation group where you can organise CPD meetings with fellow team members

Client Types
99% of clients will be referred under a Mental Health Treatment Plan so you will need to write progress reports as a part of their treatment. Templates are provided to make this easier.

Our client base ranges from children all the way to seniors. The median client is aged 39. Clients under age 18 and over age 60 make up 4.3% and 5.4% of all clients respectively.

You may specify if you do not want to see a certain age group or presentation.

We do not see clients that require assessments, diagnoses, reports, or letters for any third party. The only reports you are required to write are for client MHTPs.

Location
This role is remote, so you can work from wherever you like, provided it is a quiet and confidential space.

Hours
You can choose which hours you want to make available, and you can adjust them at any time. We are looking for therapists who have a minimum of 5 hours per week available. We generally fill a 10-hour schedule in 2 weeks.

 

Payment
Payment for your services will be deposited into your bank account directly by Medicare or our private payment system. Full payment is deposited into your account 1-2 days after the appointment. We then charge a service fee of 20% monthly.

Per appointment, after our fee, you will take home $74.68 as a registered psych and $109.64 as a clinical psych.

 

Regarding no-shows and late cancellations 

If a client misses an appointment or cancels within 48 hours, we charge them the bulk-bill rate. This means you are paid the same for a missed appointment or late cancellation as for an attended appointment.

If the client is unable to pay, we take on the cost and give you a credit equivalent to the lost income.

 

Mandatory requirements

  • Must be AHPRA registered.
  • Must have access to a device with a high-quality webcam and microphone.
  • Must have an Australian Business Number.
