Billing Update (from 3rd May 2021)
Since we opened our doors 6 years ago, we've kept our gap fee as low as possible ($22 weekdays for those who don't meet the bulk billing criteria). Due to the continued increase in running costs and continued hike in medical consumable prices, we've made the hard decision to increase our gap fee to account for this and allow us to continue providing the same quality of care.
Bulk Billed if you meet the concessional rates below
Gap - $25 (if you don't meet the Bulk Billing criteria below)
Gap - $20 (if you meet the concessional criteria below)
Gap - $35 if you don't meet concessional rates below (provided you have a valid Medicare Card)
Patients without a Medicare Card will need to pay in full
During COVID-19 - Phone Consults
During this difficult period, we've decided to currently BULK BILL all GP phone consults for our patients who hold a valid Medicare card.
Should you have a face-to-face consult, the usual below fees apply until the end of April 2021. Please see new billing charges for May 2021 onwards.
We are a Mixed Billing Practice. As such, fees are payable for the practitioners you see.
For the purposes of our fees, we have a concessional rate, and a full rate.
For concessional rate, consultations are bulk billed weekdays.

Please note, when you pay just the gap fee, Medicare will pay the doctor the rest of the consult in the form of a cheque. Unfortunately, they post this cheque to our patients to bring back to us. It is for the doctor, so please bring it back whenever you're in the neighbourhood.
Non Attendance Fee
As we're an appointment based clinic, please be mindful of other patients wanting to book in.
If you cannot attend an appointment, please ring our reception to cancel and avoid a non attendance fee.
Repeat non attendance (3 or more) without notice, will incur a non attendance fee of $50+GST.
