Private Billing Policy
As you will have learnt recently from the media, regrettably Medicare Rebates have only increased by a few cents in the last 5 years. This falls far short of ever-increasing practice running costs.
Unfortunately, it is for this reason that this practice must adhere to our policy of privately billing patients who are not on a Pensioner Concession Card, Health Care Card, Commonwealth Seniors Health Card or who are not covered under Veterans Affairs, WorkCover or TAC.
Patients with the above-mentioned cards or entitlements will continue to be bulk-billed or billed through TAC or WorkCover.
Children 15 years and under will also continue to be bulk-billed, as will all patients returning for results and brief reviews only, subsequent desensitisation injections, subsequent wound dressings and for most EPC Care Plans and Mental Health Care Plans.
We hope you will understand the reason for this policy, so we may continue to provide you with caring and dedicated treatment with appropriate length consultations.
