    ** As of 1st November 2017, Children under 16 years will be bulk-billed (Monday to Friday) **

For patients to be bulk-billed (for consultations only) at this clinic they must produce a CURRENT Pension card.   All current Health Care Card holders will be charged at a reduced rate, incurring approximately $21.00 out of pocket expense

We would also point out that to minimise cost to families, if more than one patient of the same family is seen at the same time, the second patient MAY (depending on complexity) be charged at the Medicare rebate plus $21.00 (approximately), subsequent patient is at the Medicare rebate only. (The rebate is the amount of refund received from Medicare, being $37.60 for standard consult)

Arrangements may be made for other patients suffering from chronic conditions or having financial difficulties to receive consideration . Also if you have any questions regarding charges or payments - talk to your Doctor or our Practice Manager about this

Please also be aware ALL medical procedures are charged privately (Concession card holders under 75 years of age charged at a reduced fee)

Please check costing with your Doctor or our Reception Staff prior to any procedure
