Our Fees: Fees increase with CPI on July 1, 2019

There is list of 'common fees' on the notice board in each of our waiting rooms. Our receptionists can also advise you of the expected fee for the service to be provided.

For a standard consultation (item 23) in business hours the fee is:

Regular Payers: $ 69.20    (The out of pocket cost is $26.00 when the service is paid on the day) 

The current Medicare Rebate for Item 23 is $38.20  

Government Health Care Card Rate: $63.20

Important Note: All fees paid on the day of service will attract a $5.00 discount per service.

Pensioners who hold a current Government Pension Card are usually bulk billed for routine consultations in business hours.  Procedural items are not bulk billed. 

Bulk billing is at the treating practitioners discretion and it also relates to the complexity of the presenting problem.

There is no discount for patients holding a Seniors Card.  

All children under 16 years will be bulk billed for routine consultations in business hours.

All services provided after hours will attract a Private Fee.
