At our clinic, we offer bulk billing for concession card holders, pensioners, and children under 16 years of age, ensuring that they have zero out-of-pocket expenses for regular consultations.

Please be advised that fees for certain medical procedures, such as minor surgical procedures and travel vaccinations, may be higher than usual. Additionally, any applicable Medicare rebates may also be larger.

Out-of-pocket costs for diagnostic tests and specialist visits may vary, and your doctor can provide guidance on these expenses.

Please note that a facility fee will be charged for all procedures carried out in our Treatment Room to ensure adequate levels of nursing and medical care. There is no Medicare rebate available for the facility fee. Furthermore, this fee is separate from any fees charged for medical dressings or supplies used during the procedure.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please speak with our practice manager or nursing staff.
