Our after hours service is provided by CALMS (Canberra After Hours Locum Medical Service):
Ph 1300 422 567
Our consultation fees are as follows:
|Consultation||Fee||Medicare Rebate (July 2019)|
|Standard (up to 20 min)||$90||$38.20|
|Long (up to 40 min)||$150||$73.95|
|Extended (over 40 min)||$220||$108.85|
Our fees are competitive by Canberra general practice standards. For most people there will be a ‘gap’ or ‘out of pocket’ payment because Medicare rebates have not kept pace with the cost of providing healthcare. If you have a chronic illness you may qualify for a GP Management Plan (‘Care Plan’) which allows us to provide more comprehensive care - please discuss this with your doctor.
Medicare Rebate (Bulk Billing) and concession fees
We generally bulk bill patients on an aged pension or with a DVA Health Gold card; and children under 5.
Patients with a Pension Card (other than for Age Pension), a Health Care Card, or a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card are eligible for a concession fee. In the case of a standard 15 minute consultation they would pay $70.00 (as against the standard fee of $90).
The practice does not operate on credit and patients are requested to pay at the time of the consultation. We accept cash, cheque, EFTPOS and credit card. Patients who have difficulty paying should discuss the issue with their doctor.
Workers Compensation claims and Third Party Insurance claims are the responsibility of the patient. Payment at the time of consultation is required.
A cancellation fee of $40 may be charged for appointments not kept, unless 6 working hours prior notice has been given (e.g. to cancel a 3pm appointment the patient would have to give notice by 9am on the same day).
