Private Billing

The Australian Medical Association guidelines suggest a standard consultation fee of $96.

We are a mixed billing practice.

Currently, our fee for a standard consultation is $75.00 with a claimable Medicare rebate of $41.20.

Bulk Billing is available to Children 16 years and under, Pensioners and Concession Card holders during the week 8am to 5:30pm and on Saturday mornings 8:30am to 12:45pm.

Private billing rates apply at all times to those who don’t qualify for bulk billing.

We ask that you pay the whole practice fee on the day of service. Medicare will then deposit into your account the rebate (usually within 24 hours) leaving you with an out-of-pocket cost which should be no more than $33.80 for a regular appointment, and no more than $50.30 for long appointments.
This billing policy is for both face-to-face consultations at the surgery and for telephone/telehealth appointments.

If you are having difficulty paying our fees at any time, please discuss this with your doctor.

Medical procedures such as minor surgery eg: suturing, removal of skin lumps/cancers may attract an extra fee for all patient categories. Please discuss with your treating GP at the time of consultation

Please be reminded that if an appointment is missed, a fee will be charged.

 

Please bring your Medicare card and any pension or Veterans Affairs cards with you to the clinic.

Some services, including WorkCover injuries and medical examinations for insurance and employment, are not able to be legally bulk billed. For services not covered by Medicare, you will be responsible for payment at time of consultation by cash or credit card. This includes telehealth appointments.
