Payments and fees

Fees are recommended to be paid directly after your consultation. We accept cash, cheque, eftpos or credit card. Our fees remain below those recommended by the AMA and our billing policy is displayed on our notice board in reception. Please discuss with your doctor if your medical care is causing you financial difficulties.

This practice generally does not bulk bill. But, particular preventative care visits, when nurse assisted, may be bulk billed. We also have some bulk billing doctors. See the bulk billing doctors under “TEAM”.

Patients holding full pensioner card or healthcare card entitlements are offered discount rates.

General billing levels

  • The standard consultation (15 minutes) is charged at $65 (The current Medicare rebate is $37.05)
  • The long consultation (20-40 minutes) is charged at $105 (The current Medicare rebate is $71.70)
When the consultation takes either less time or more time than booked, an appropriate fee will be charged.

Note: Same day only appointments will incur an extra $5 fee
