Fees

Current Fees

It is the policy of this practice that all private fees need to be paid in full on the day of consult. A surcharge will be added to all accounts not paid on the day of consultation.

Standard consultations are booked for 15mins. Please note this also includes the administration time the doctor needs to review and write up any notes after the face-to-face consultation occurs. Fees vary according to the nature of your consultation and will depend on the length of time that you spend with your doctor, the complexity of your condition and any additional services performed (excisions, procedures, vaccinations, dressings etc).

All consults for DVA Gold Card Holders are bulk billed.

Children under the age of 16 are bulk billed for GP consults but charges apply for treatment room services.

Any patient 16 years of age and over holding a current Student ID Card will receive a reduced full payment with a $25 gap.

As a service to our patients, we have implemented “TYRO Online Claiming” which enables us to send your paid account directly to Medicare instantly via the internet, and giving you an immediate refund back into your nominated savings or cheque account.  Please ask our friendly reception staff to explain this service to you.

We will continue to direct bill Medicare for the following:

  • Children aged 15 years and under (for GP consults)
  • GPMPs (chronic disease management plans)
  • Health Assessments
  • Selected treatment room appointments (e.g. immunisations that form part of the National Immunisation Program)

  • Ear Syringes
  • B12 Injections
  • Cryotherapy
