Do you Bulk-Bill?

We are a mixed billing practice, which means only some services and patients are Bulk Billed. At the same time, all GPs at our practice are independent practitioners who decide their own fees.

What is mixed billing?

Mixed Billing means our practice charges a private fee for some consultations and patients, and bulk bills others. Bulk-Billing is when the payment for your consultation or treatment with your doctor is covered entirely by Medicare, whereas services not covered by bulk billing attract a private fee and you will receive a rebate from Medicare. This means there is an out of pocket cost to you

Why should I pay a private fee?

At our practice, we passionately believe in providing access to high quality healthcare to our community. By becoming a mixed billing practice, we are able to meet the rising costs of running a practice to minimise wait times, retain high quality GPs, provide valuable consultations and facilitate services like Women’s Health so that you and your family receive the healthcare that you deserve in a family friendly environment.

How do I pay for my appointment?

All fees will need to be paid in full on the day of your appointment
Fees can be paid by, credit or EFTPOS
You will be required to pay the full fee for the consultation and then the practice will submit the claim to medicare on your behalf.
Medicare will pay the rebate to you within 24 hours.

Patients without a valid Medicare or concession card will pay a private fee and are not eligible to receive a Medicare rebate.
