The Doctors independently determine the Fee Payable for the treatment provided. The above table is a guide only.
Payment is required at the time of consultation
Children 15 years and under are bulk billed (except Saturday)
Procedures, tests & vaccinations may incur additional charges
Saturday morning clinic
We run a clinic on Saturday mornings for non-routine issues. Limited online appointments become available from Friday, otherwise please phone the surgery on Saturday morning from 7:45 am. Appointments (if available) will be offered from 8am until 11am. From 11am-midday we offer a walk-in clinic and patients will be seen in order of arrival, although seriously ill patients may need to take priority.
PLEASE NOTE THE DOCTORS DO NOT BULK BILL AT ALL ON SATURDAY MORNING.
Why are there out of pocket costs?
Medicare rebates do not cover the full cost of providing you with high quality medical care. This is because the government has failed to increase the Medicare rebate to match the rise in Consumer Price Index (CPI) for many years.
The fees are structured to reflect the time you spend with the Doctor as well as the number and complexity of matters discussed during your consultation. All of the Doctors charge independently, therefore if you are seen by someone other than your usual Doctor, the fee may vary.
Your Medicare Rebate
Medicare no longer sends cheque refunds to patients. They encourage all patients to register their bank details, so that the refund from the consultation goes directly into the patient's bank account. Our reception staff can provide you information about this process.
If you do not have medicare at the time of appointment and/or wish to claim the rebate from Medicare at a later date you will need to make the claim yourself. Guidance for this can be found at https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/medicare-claims?context=60092.
