Fees

Both of our practices and our staff are committed to providing quality care to all patients, at all times. Unfortunately due to the current rates of inflation and the lack of funding through Medicare, it is no longer possible to cover the running costs as well provide high quality healthcare across both centres based on Medicare rebates alone. For this reason we have made the decision to change our practice schedule to cover the gap in costs for our practices. 

The Australian Medical Association has recently released useful information to help demonstrate why a gap is necessary. Please visit the link for more information. Why Is There A Gap?

Please see below the updated fee structure for our practices including bulk-billing for eligible patients and consultation rebates from Medicare for private consults.
