Telephone Consultations – Update
From 1st October 2020, Telehealth Consultations will no longer be routinely bulk-billed for all patients.
Medicare Patients with a Centerlink Health Care or Pension Card, or children under 16 will continue to be bulk-billed for Telehealth, provided they have attended the clinic for a Face-to-Face Appointment in the last 12 months.
A Private Fee will apply for all other telehealth consultations. After the Medicare Rebate, patients will be out of pocket $33 regardless of consultation length.
Payment will be collected prior to the consultation, via a secure payment request we send from Hotdoc, or over the phone. Medicare rebates will be processed online to save you hassle.
We are a mixed billing practice and most consultations incur a Gap fee after the Medicare rebate. Immediate Medicare rebate is able to be made back onto your savings card on the spot electronically.
All our Doctors charge individually therefore if you do not see your usual doctor your consultation fee may vary.
Doctors offer a discounted rate for pensioners, children and students.
