FEES AND APPOINTMENT INFORMATION

Accepting

WorkCover, NDIS, TAC and HICAPS for private health claiming is available onsite. With the exception of plan-managed NDIS participants, accounts must be paid in full on the day of the appointment and our friendly reception team will prepare the necessary information for you to claim your entitlements.

GP Health Care Plans (CDMs)

Medicare will rebate your consultation up to an amount which increases every year. For an example for the 2022-2023 financial year the rebate from Medicare was $56. We will need paperwork of your CDM prior to your appointment for the rebate to be claimed which we can do for you onsite on the day of your appointment. Your GP will usually send this directly to us but sometimes you will need to bring this to us if they give the paperwork to you.

While we provide the claiming facilities for this as an added service to our clients, eligibility for any rebates though insurance or Medicare is your responsibility to manage to ensure you can access your entitlements.

NDIS

Self-managed and plan-managed participants.

Minors

There is no age limit to treating minors. If a parent is booking in a child, there is the option to have an initial appointment without the child so the parent can discuss any issues freely.

Cancellation Policy

To avoid the consult fee, notify us at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to cancel or reschedule so we can arrange to care for another client during that time. If the required notice is not given and you can’t make your appointment but we are successfully able to fill that place, no fee will be charged.

Fees

Initial: $120
Return 30 minutes: $95
Return 45 minutes: $120
