In order to maintain the long term sustainability of our practice and cover increasing costs, we have made the difficult decision to introduce an out of pocket fee. In order to minimise the impact of this change, we will continue to bulk bill (i.e. not charge):

  • All children 16 years of age and under*
  • All patients 70 years of age and over*
  • Patients with a Centrelink Concession Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card
  • Veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) white or gold card
  • Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander patients*
  • Specific services such as chronic disease care plans and mental health care plans

*Must hold a valid Medicare care

The following fees will be introduced from 6th February 2023 for patients ineligible for bulk billing
