From 1st December 2020, we will be increasing our practice fee to sustain continuity of the business.
Private Billing Schedule:
We are a mixed billing practice and most consultations incur a Gap fee after the Medicare rebate. Immediate Medicare rebate is able to be made back onto your savings card on the spot electronically.
All our Doctors charge individually therefore if you do not see your usual doctor your consultation fee may vary.
Some Doctors offer a discounted rate for pensioners, children and students.
Telephone Consultations – Update
From 1st October 2020, Telehealth Consultations will no longer be routinely bulk-billed for all patients.
Children under 16 will continue to be bulk-billed by some doctors for Telehealth, provided they have attended the clinic for a Face-to-Face Appointment in the last 12 months.
A Private Fee will apply for all telehealth consultations and the charges will be the same as regular Face-to-Face fee schedule.
New Patients over 12 months of age requiring a phone consultation will attract a private fee of $136 with no Medicare Rebate.
Payment will be collected prior to the consultation, via a secure payment request we send from Hotdoc, or over the phone. Medicare rebates will be processed online to save you hassle.
Non Attendance Policy:
Please note that a Non-Attendance Fee of $40 is payable if a patient does not attend their standard appointment or if the appointment is cancelled with less than two hours notice.
Vaccines & Procedural Fees:
For all vaccination and procedural costs please ask one of our friendly receptionists. Your doctor will explain any additional costs to you and obtain your consent prior to receiving treatment.
- Any consultations requiring additional services may be charged a procedural equipment fee of between $10 – $80.
- Travel vaccines will incur a private fee also for the purchase of the vaccine as they are not covered by Medicare but the consultation is Bulk Billed for patients with a valid Medicare if performed on a weekday (private billing on weekends)
- Your doctor will explain any additional costs to you and obtain your consent prior to any treatment received.
Pre-employment medical assessments and other medical assessments are also privately billed.
