Fees and Billing
We are a private billing GP clinic. For clients 16 years and older, fees are payable at the time of consultation, while children 15 years and under are directly billed to Medicare where eligible.
Discounted rates are available for those in possession of a Pension or Commonwealth Healthcare Card. DVA Gold Card holders are direct billed to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
There may be additional costs for specific procedures performed, such as cryotherapy, ECG or minor surgery. Please ask our reception staff for the respective fees.
Private patients’ Medicare rebates can be refunded directly to a savings or cheque account, on the day of their consultation. Accounts can be paid with a credit card but the refund must be paid into a savings or cheque account.
