Fees & Billing
Most of our services are Bulk Billed upon presenting Australian Medicare card. However, a $30 fee applies to the first visit of all new patients (patietnts registering first time) and all walk-in patients without prior appointment.
What does it mean? It means that you will pay your dues in full including $30 gap fee, the consultation fee and any other charges that may apply. You would be refunded the consultation fee by Medicare Australia within 48 hours on registering your bank details at the reception.
Alternatively, if you do not wish to provide your bank details, you can take the receipt showing full payment to Medicare Australia for a rebateable amount.
A private fee applies to all patrons without Medicare Card. To inquire about vaccines and other costs, please call or ask from the reception.
Home And Other Visits
Home visits are available at doctor’s discretion for patients within 5km distance from the practice and whose condition prevents them from attending the surgery. A non refundable fee of $50 may apply.
