Bulk Billing

We bulk bill all patients who can produce a current concession, pension or commonwealth seniors card, and all children under the age of 16 years. For all other patients we require full payment of consults on the day. Please refer to our fee schedule on the front counter. A surcharge will be added to all accounts where payment is not paid on the day, at the account rate. Additional fees may apply to any procedures undertaken at the time of consultation.

 

Just a reminder about how you can obtain your Medicare rebate. There are two choices:

 

1. Tyro- puts your refund straight back in your bank account.
2. Register your bank details (BSB & Account No.) either with Medicare or us here, and the rebate will be deposited into your account within 2 working days.
All children under 16, current Health Care Card Holders, Pensions and Commonwealth Seniors Card holders are bulk billed for most services.

Bulk billing on Saturday mornings – ceasing as from October, 2018

 

As Medicare rebates are not keeping up with increasing Practice costs, and the increased strain on our services, as from October, 2018 we unfortunately will no longer be bulk billing patients on a concession card, pension or children under 16 on Saturdays. Bulk billing will still be available Monday through to Friday.
For all other patients the fees remain the same.

 

Anyone holding a government pension or concession card, or a student ID card, consult will need to be paid in full on the day with an out of pocket expense of $20. Please note this also applies to all children under 16 years of age. You can receive your rebate back immediately into your savings or cheque account through our Tyro service.

 

We thank you for your understanding.
