Children 15yrs and younger will be bulk billed, except in the following situations:
- Walk Ins / Non-scheduled appointments will not be bulk billed
- Afterhours appointments will not be bulk billed
Integrative consultations, Occupational or Aviation Medicals, and other non-Medicare rebateable consultations or reports are priced according to complexity.
Consultations are by appointment, but an emergency will be seen without appointment and triaged with our nurse.
- Biopsies, excisions and other surgical procedures
- ECG and spirometry
- Ear syringing
This is to help cover the cost of various items used during the procedure such as disposable surgical equipment, dressings, sutures, local anaesthetic and cryotherapy. The Doctor or the reception staff will be able to inform you if your visit will attract a facility fee.
Failure to attend an appointment without a minimum 2hrs notice will incur a non-attendance fee of $35 for a single appointment and $50 for extended bookings.
All fees are to be paid on the date of service provided. Emergency care will not be refused however the convenience of routine appointments will not be made available to those with outstanding accounts.
