Private Health Fund Rebates
Individual Consultations are rebatable through most private health funds. The rebate will depend on your level of cover, please call your health fund to see what rebate you will be entitled to.
With some chronic conditions, your GP may choose to refer you under a team care plan (TCP). This means your appointment is rebateable through the Medicare Plus initiative. You will need to pay for your consultation up front and take the receipt back to Medicare for your rebate. Currently the rebate is $52.95 for each session.
Department of Veteran's Affairs (DVA)
I am a provider for the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). If you have a Gold card or relevant condition under other card types, you will not have to pay for your visit. If you are DVA eligible, please see your GP for appropriate referral.
Health care and pension card holders
Initial appointments for health care and pension card holders are available at the reduced fee of $100 for a 1 hour consult and $50 for a review appointment.
**All fees are payable on or prior to the day of consultation
Failure to attend an arranged appointment is unfair to other patients and your practitioner’s time, so please provide 24 hours notice if you are unable to make a scheduled appointment. Failure to do so will result in the full cost of the scheduled appointment being charged.
