We are a PRIVATE billing practice and all fees are payable at the time of consultation - we do not run accounts and any outstanding fees need to be resolved before your next appointment. We can process your Medicare claim instantly to a debit card, or within a few days to your bank account registered with Medicare.  If there are any difficulties regarding this, please speak to our Practice Manager so alternate arrangements can be made.  EFTPOS, Credit Card (MasterCard and Visa), and cash are all accepted.

 

A list of usual fees is displayed in the waiting room and the consultation rooms. EFTPOS is available. A discount rate is available for pension card holders.

 

Aged pensioners and children under 16 are bulk billed at our discretion, although if you do not have your medicare card and pension details with you on request, you will need to pay the current rate for the doctors visit and claim your refund from Medicare.

Procedural Fees for skin

The fees for skin cancer surgeries are charged in 2 parts.  The first is a fee on the day to cover consumables used on day and any follow up dressings and nurse expenses (usually between $90-$150 per lesion).  The 2nd fee covers the doctors fee and is dependent on the pathology result of the lesion, its location and size, so the final fees will not be known until your follow up appointment. Your GP will be able to provide you with an estimate for each lesion. If other issues are discussed within your procedural consultation unrelated to the lesion, an additional fee may be charged depending on the duration of the consultation
