Due to reduced payments from Medicare and the increased costs of running a medical practice it has become necessary to implement changes to our fees and billing practices.
From 1st January 2020, the Medicare bulk-billing incentive is reducing significantly and our practice will no longer be able to accept the Medicare rebate as full payment regardless of a patient's age, pension or health care card status. Patients will now be required to pay in full for their consultation on the day of their appointment and will receive their Medicare rebate directly into their nominated bank account. Unfortunately, we can no longer routinely "bulk bill" patients.
From 1st January 2020 our fees will be as follows (if on moblie view in landscape mode):
Pensioners & Concession
Card Holders Fee Medicare Rebate
Standard Consultation $50 $38.20
Long Consultation $90 $73.95
Mental Health Care Plan $110 $92.50
Review of Mental Health Plan $90 $72.85
Private Patients Fee Medicare Rebate
Standard Consultation $75 $38.20
Long Consultation $130 $73.95
Mental Health Care Plan $142.50 $92.50
Review of Mental Health Plan $122.85 $72.85
