Fees

A surcharge will be added to all accounts not paid on the day of consultation.

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.
