Upcoming Billing Changes

Due to the Government's continued freeze on Medicare and increasing costs, we have needed to introduce a gap payment for some. This will take affect as of October this year.

What does this mean for me?

If you meet one of the criteria below, we will continue to bulk bill you on weekdays.

  • Under 16 years old

  • Hold a Healthcare Card

  • Pensioner Concession Card

  • Commonwealth Seniors Health Card

  • DVA Card

  • From the Retirement Villages or Nursing Homes we service.

If you do not fall into the above category, the gap will be $22.

We have tried to keep this gap as low as possible.

On weekends, gap payment will apply to everyone.

For patients who are eligible for bulk billing on weekdays, the gap will be $15

For patients who do not fit the bulk billing eligibility, the gap will be $27.

Patients without a valid Medicare card will continue to be privately billed.
