NEW BILLING POLICY

 As of 22nd of October 2018

Due to increasing costs please note the following charges will apply to ALL patients including long standing patients.

PENSIONERS will be bulk billed

HEALTH CARE CARD HOLDERS will be billed a health care card rate, approximately $15 out of pocket.

All other patients will be billed PRIVATELY according to our fee list.

WE REQUIRE FULL PAYMENT ON THE DAY

If you have any concerns regarding the billing please make an appointment with the Practice Manager.

WHY DO WE CHARGE FOR CONSULTATIONS WITH YOUR DOCTOR?

The fee charged by a medical practitioner covers not only their own personal income, but also our practice costs including the wages for practice staff (nurses, receptionists, administrators), and other costs for running a medical practice such as equipment, medical supplies, cleaning, rent, electricity, computers, continuing professional development, accreditation and insurance.

Medicare rebates do not, and were never intended to, cover the full cost of medical services. Medical practitioners are able to set their own fees for their services. The Medicare Schedule Fee and the Medicare rebate do not reflect the value of a medical service or an amount that medical practitioners should or must charge.

Results Policy 16/7/2018 to 26/7/2018

Patients Please Note

Our Practice Nurse are away at the moment.  We will not be giving results over the phone during this time.  If you would like your results please make a follow up appointment with your doctor.
