GPs can become providers of FPS providing they fulfil the training requirements as set by the GPMHSC; FPS are specific mental healthcare treatment strategies, derived from evidence-based psychological therapies.
When registered with Medicare as FPS providers, GPs can provide GP Focussed Psychological Strategies services (item numbers 2721-2727) to a maximum of 10 sessions per person per calendar year.

In exceptional circumstances, the GPMHSC can exempt GPs from completing the requirements for obtaining MHST and/or FPS ST accreditation to gain access to the mental healthcare items through the MBS. Although mental health training is strongly encouraged, GPs who are able to demonstrate that they have achieved the learning outcomes of MHST and or FPS ST are able to apply for an exemption to the GPMHSC.
