Patients are asked to pay the full amount of their consultation on the day of the visit. With the new Medicare online services available, if you have lodged your bank account details with Medicare, you will receive your rebate within 48 hours. Please ask staff for more details if you haven’t already lodged your details with Medicare or visit the Medicare website at:
You will be asked to sign a voucher stating the Medicare fee after your consultation. If you would like a copy of the signed voucher, you will be provided with one. Please understand if we ask to see your current Medicare or concession card. Medicare Online is a cashless system.
Please be aware that some consultations are not funded by Medicare. Examples include: pre-employment medical examinations or reports, paperwork not related to a health concern (e.g. a passport forms or witnessed signatures), paperwork or other discussion about a legal case, any consultation about a patient who is not present (e.g. parent asking about their child, when the child does not attend). In these circumstances you may need to pay the full fee, so we ask you to let us know in advance to avoid any misunderstanding.
Workcover and TAC
As these are not Medicare consultations, they cannot be bulk billed. Usually, you will need either to pay for your consultation in full, or provide prior agreement from your employer or the TAC to pay for the consultation. Once your claim is established, we will bill the insurer directly whenever your visit is relevant to your claim.
