We are a mixed billing surgery

Weekdays, we bulk bill:

Saturdays, a $25 out of pocket charge applies to all patients.

Non-concession card holders older than 16 years: $15 out-of-pocket for consultations.
A $30 dollar surcharge applies to procedures e.g. skin excisions, stitches, Mirena, Implanon, and cortisone injections for all patients.

Billing Procedure

As per the Medicare legislation the full consultation fee has to be paid before the rebate can come back to you. Our Eftpos terminals make this process as simple as possible. By swiping your card once the full fee will be charged. By swiping your card again the Medicare rebate will be refunded to you. Please be aware the Medicare refund cannot be paid into a credit card account so you need a savings or cheque account to receive the rebate immediately.

New patients

As a new patient to the surgery we will ask you to fill in a new patients form. Please bring it in on your first visit together with your Medicare Card.
