Billing Policy

WEEKDAY CONSULTATIONS

During the week, all patients with a valid Medicare Card will be Bulk-Billed for their consultation.

Walk-in appointments are also bulk-billed, however we encourage booking in advance to avoid wait-times.

Patients without a Medicare Card can pay privately, and claim rebates back from private health fund or travel insurance where appropriate.

WEEKEND CONSULTATIONS

We are a fully private billing practice on weekends and public holidays. A reduced gap fee is charged for children under 16, pension and concession card holders’ consultations.

Please note that consultations on Sundays or Public Holidays will attract a higher fee to the usual schedule as these are considered after-hours consultations.

NON-ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please note a Non-Attendance Fee of $20 is payable if a patient does not attend their doctors appointment or if the appointment is cancelled with less than one hours notice.

If a patient fails to give 48hours notice or does not attend an allied health appointment, a Non-Attendance Fee of 50% of the consult fee will need to be paid.

VACCINES AND PROCEDURES

For all vaccination and procedural costs please ask one of our friendly receptionists. Your doctor will explain any additional costs to you  and obtain your consent prior to receiving treatment.

  • Any consultations requiring additional services may be charged a procedural equipment fee of between $10 – $100.
  • Travel vaccines will incur a private fee also for the purchase of the vaccine as they are not covered by Medicare.
