WHY DO WE CHARGE A FEE FOR MEDICAL SERVICES?

At Nuvo Health Leichhardt, the quality care that you receive is a product of the dedication and expertise of our staff and a modern, well-equipped facility.

Current and previous governments have failed to regularly increase the Medicare rebates. This means Medicare rebates have never kept pace with the cost of living and have never covered the true cost of delivering quality medical care.

This charge ensures Nuvo Health Leichhardt can continue to provide you and your family with high quality healthcare whilst also covering the ever increasing costs of running a business in Sydney especially while under a Medicare freeze environment.

Nuvo Health Leichhardt has chosen to continue to subsidise your healthcare by setting our fees lower than the current recommended fee schedule set by the Medical Association of Australia (AMA).

MEDICARE EZYCLAIM

Nuvo Health Leichhardt provides Medicare Ezyclaim for all rebates. Funds are directly deposited back onto your debit card instantly. Please enquire at reception for more information.
