Fees are payable at the time of consultation by cash or bankcard – MasterCard or Visa. The AMA fee structure forms the basis of our billing policy and is displayed in the reception area of the surgery. Patients are informed of any additional costs prior to the procedure or therapy being carried out. Accounts that are not settled at the time of consultation will incur a $10 admin fee.
If you have any difficulty paying our fees, please discuss it with us. The GPs at this practice provide reduced costs for ‘Aged Pension’, ‘Disability Pension’ and ‘Health Care’ card holders. Children aged 10-years-old and under are bulk billed Monday-Friday, however if use of the treatment room is required e.g. cast application, bandages etc. a fee will be incurred. Your consultation (if the treatment room is required) if usually bulk billed, will be charged at the schedule fee. This means that you will pay for your consult on the day but the full amount is claimable through Medicare, and will be refunded, in full, straight back into your account again. Any expense for the treatment room is however out of pocket and not claimable.
Please note that appointments from 5.00pm and Saturday appointments are not able to be bulkbilled and will incur a fee for all patients.
