BULK BILLING

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.

FACILITY FEES

For Example:

  • 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.

NON-ATTENDANCE

    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.

    OUTSTANDING ACCOUNTS

      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.
