Each doctor within the practice has set their own fees for private paying patients. Billing will depend upon the services provided during your consultation. An additional fee will be charged for accounts not settled on the day. Information on fees is available on request. As a guide, standard consultation fees range from $65.00 – $70.00, with a Medicare rebate of $38.20.
There is usually no out of pocket expense for Commonwealth Seniors Health Card holders, Pension Concession Card holders, Health Care Card holders and children under 16 years of age. However, you must present your current concession card at the time of your appointment in order to be bulk billed.
WorkCover: If your consultation is work-related, you may need to pay a WorkCover consultation fee (fees range from $83.00 – $160.00). Accounts are payable on the day and are the responsibility of the patient. If you have a WorkCover claim number, we may be able to lodge your claim on your behalf.
We accept payment by cash, cheque, Eftpos and Credit Card over the phone.
Please note that an account keeping fee of $20 will be added to all accounts not paid on the day.
For your convenience, we have the facilities to lodge your Medicare claim online. Please note that this service is only available to accounts paid on the day.

When your doctor/practice nurse makes a referral or requests investigations for you, it is important to understand that it may result in an out-of-pocket expense. We can provide you with the contact details of the referred service provider so you can find out about costs for that service. Please speak with your doctor/practice nurse should you wish to access this.
