This practice does not bulk bill. Fees charged will vary according to the type of consultation - i.e. length, complexity, involvement of procedures and whether you see a GP, Specialist or Allied Health provider.
For GP and Specialist appointments, a rebate can be claimed from Medicare; however, there is usually a gap between doctor's fees and the amount that Medicare will reimburse you. This will result in an out of pocket expense to you.
For Allied Health appointments, there is no Medicare rebate applicable unless you have a chronic medical condition that is being managed by your GP under a management plan (speak to your GP if you are not sure whether this applies to you).
Payment is required at the time of consultation, after which you can claim your rebate from Medicare. You may pay with cash, by EFTPOS, Visa or MasterCard.
Information regarding fees will be provided when you book an initial appointment. Please ask the reception staff if you require any additional information.
Please check with your private health fund regarding available rebates.
For any further information, please contact the Jean Hailes Medical Centre on (03) 9562 7555.
