Billing and Fees
In recognition of the increased costs and complexity of providing quality medical services, we do not bulk-bill all medical service costs to Medicare Australia (see below).
Our fees are displayed at the reception, if you have any questions please raise with our reception staff.
Fees are payable at the time of the consultation.
We accept Cash, EFTPOS, Mastercard Visa or cheque
Through our direct connection to Medicare via HIC Online, your Medicare claim can be processed on the spot, and a rebate deposited into your nominated bank account within 48 hours. Ask our staff how this works.
Children Under 16 are all Bulk Billed.
A discounted fee is charged to those on a Pension and a Health Care Card.
** Week-end Fees
Saturday & Sunday visits are privately billed with the exception of children under the age of 16 and DVA Gold Card holders.
Week-end fees will be at the discretion of the doctor working that shift: NB this includes our normal policy of bulk-billing children under the age of 16.
If you require a script renewal you can either see one of our doctors that has a spare appointment and you will be bulk billed, or you can pay a fee of $10 (non-Medicare refundable) if you do not want to see a doctor.
If you have difficulty paying our fees at any time, please discuss this with your doctor.
The following services are bulk-billed;
The following is an indication of fees, but billing is dependent upon the services and consumables required and the applicable Medicare item numbers for those services.
