After careful consideration, we wish to advise that from the 1st January 2022, we will be introducing Mixed Billing to our practice.Click here for more info
What is Mixed Billing?
What is Mixed Billing? Mixed billing means that most patients will now pay a ‘gap payment’ for appointments. A gap payment is an out of pocket cost that is the difference between the Practice’s Private fee and your Medicare rebate.
Some patients will continue to be Bulk Billed : Children 12 years and under, Adults 70 years and over, and DVA card holders.
Patient’s eligible for a concession: Full-Time students with a valid student card, Health Care Card Holders and Pension Card Holders.
This decision has been made after careful consideration and with mixed emotions. We have delayed making these changes for some time now but the reality is the returns we receive from Medicare simply do not cover the costs of operating a General Practice -especially a practice that prides itself on providing the highest quality of Primary Healthcare as we do.
We are committed to maintaining and improving the quality of care we provide and we are taking this step so we can continue to serve our community.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support in the past and into the future as we implement these changes.
