Please note that many of your Medicare rebates were frozen until 2020. This was introduced by a Labor government in 2013. No attempt has been made to index these to the rise in Average Weekly Earnings over this time. Click here to see the increasing magnitude of the gap
The standard fee for a Standard Consultation (15-20 mins) is $84 but may range from $74.00 - $95.00*. The Medicare rebate for this is $39.10, which can be instantly refunded to your debit bank account by Medicare Online software if you provide your bank account details to Medicare. Alternatively, we can arrange for your refund to be mailed to you. The Long Consultation (20-40 mins) fee is from $125.00 to $180* with a Medicare rebate for this set at $75.75.
Please note that each of the doctors has a separate fee schedule especially for Musculoskeletal Consultations, Skin Cancer Care & Women’s Health consultations.
Payment at the time of consultation is required, either in full or in special situations, the "gap" amount may be accepted. Cash, cheque, credit card (MasterCard, AMEX or Visa) can be used for settlement.
Between 10.00 am and 4.20 pm, direct (bulk) billing to Medicare is available at the Practice for infants and school children under 16 years as well as for Veterans’ Affairs Gold Cardholders and Age Pensioners over 70yrs. Bulk-billing is available for Centrelink Concession Cardholders for consultations provided by our Registrars. University Students 25 years and under are eligible for discounted fees upon presentation of valid student cards.
Non-smoking patients considered in need may be bulk billed * at the doctor's discretion.
*Bulk billing represents a 50% reduction below the recommended AMA consultation fee and is well below the level at which quality professional services can consistently be provided.
In order to maintain high standards of equipment and facilities, all procedural work such as excisions, fracture care and wound sutures, in general, will attract a gap fee for non-cardholders. This fee will vary according to the complexity and length of the procedure. The maximum gap is $100 per single procedure.
Pre-booked long consultations for counselling purposes, complete well-woman checks, musculoskeletal therapy, as well as complete yearly physical checkups, will similarly attract extra fees. Accounts are discussed openly upon request and any queries you may have regarding fees are welcome.
Please ask at reception about free Health Assessments for over 75’s, Midlife Health Checks, Annual Diabetes Reviews, Asthma 2+ visits, Home Medication reviews and Care Planning for complex illnesses. Taking advantage of these processes can greatly reduce the cost of your usual care as they are all bulk-billed. As well, if you have a Care Plan prepared, you may be able to access subsidies for allied health services such as physiotherapy, podiatry, dietary and Mental Health support.
