Children 15 and under, Pensioners, Veterans’ Affairs and Health Care Card holders are bulk- billed, also full-time students on presentation of a student card, as well as routine visits for test results where no unrelated matters are raised.
All other consultations attract a private fee. Our private fees are well below standard AMA rates and are payable at the time of consultation by cash, cheque, credit card or EFTPOS.
There may be additional fees payable for complex services (travel - vaccine costs, SCUBA, addiction service, cannabis / pain management, iron infusion or a procedure). Sometimes a deposit is required at the time of making the appointment, so adequate time is set aside for you. The Medicare rebate fee (so no more out-of-pocket) will be charged when you attend. Failure to attend will forfeit this payment.
Unpaid accounts attract a $11.00 administration fee (including GST).
Please also be aware of our no-show policy with fees being half of the value of the missed appointment.
Fees applicable from 1st June 2021 are listed in the table below.
Should you have any difficulties with our fees, please discuss with our receptionist, nurse or doctor.
We use the HIC online system, which allows us to send your claim to Medicare who can refund directly to your bank account. Please ask our receptionist if you require further information.
Physiotherapy, psychology, podiatry & dietitian services cannot routinely be bulk-billed but may be covered by Private Health or WorkCover or TAC insurance or attract a Medicare rebate in some circumstances. Fees are set by the individual practitioners.
