Practice Fee Update

The Government is changing the rules about billing for consultations delivered by telephone and video link. The mandated requirement for bulk-billing has been removed in most instances, so your consultations may from now on attract a fee.

From Thursday 1st October 2020, consultations delivered by telephone and video link will no longer be routinely bulk-billed, except for AGE and DSP concession-card holders.

As with face-to-face consultations, telehealth will be billed as a private fee, which attracts a Medicare rebate.

Children under-16 and holders of other Commonwealth Concession cards will be offered a discounted fee.

To keep everyone safe during this COVID-19 emergency, telehealth will remain the principal way in which we provide care to our patients.

Please ensure that our Reception staff know if you have a Commonwealth Concession card, so that your consultation can be billed appropriately.

If you are currently experiencing financial difficulties, then please speak to us.
