Fees Schedule

Fee Schedule from 1st January 2022

  • The last practice fee increase was on 1st July 2016.
  • All consultations are timed by the Doctors and fees are scaled according to the time devoted to a consultation.
  • A standard consultation is an appointment duration of 5-20 minutes.
  • A long consultation is an appointment duration of 20-40 minutes.
  • We continue to discount our fees for all children and any patients we feel have a reduced income.
 

This involves spending time with our patients and a commitment to thoroughness. The doctors in this practice see an average 3 to 4 patients per hour. We believe we provide a quality alternative to the “high turnover”, bulk billing clinics in this area. We discount our fees for pensioners, all children and the over 75s.

 

Childhood immunisations, veterans and antenatal shared care visits are bulk billed. For families with more than one sick child seen on the same day, subsequent children will be bulk billed.

 

By reducing our fees in these ways we believe our policy is fair, but please let us know if you are experiencing any difficulties.

Medicare has increased your rebate from 1st July 2022 by 1.2%

The Government has had it “frozen” since July 2014
