Schedule of Fees

We wish to advise that from Monday the 16th of May 2022 there will be changes to our billing policy.
We regret to inform you that we can no longer provide Bulk Billing services to all our patients.

Fully Bulk Billed appointments will only be available to patients over the age of 65.

The reality is that Medicare rebates no longer cover the cost of providing you with a safe and high-quality service.

The fees charged by this practice have to cover all of our practice costs including employing receptionists and practice nurses, and meeting our operating expenses such as rent, medical equipment and consumables, electricity, computers and insurance.

Please note that we have endeavoured to make our costs as affordable as possible for all patients.

If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please discuss this with our medical professionals.

Patients must pay the full consultation fee on the day of their appointment and will be out of pocket as per the table of fees set out below. The practice will process the Medicare rebate at the time of your consultation.

If you have any queries regarding the fees at our clinic, please feel free to ask one of our friendly receptions staff.
