Repeat referrals can now be easily booked online. In the interest of better health care and monitoring, online-booked repeat referrals will only be issued for existing patients of the clinic. These requests will be assessed by your doctor, who will approve your request or decline the request on clinical grounds, where you will be advised to make an appointment.
A fee will be charged for your request that cannot be reimbursed by Medicare.
For initial referrals, the Medical Health Act requires that a doctor’s assessment takes place prior to any referral to a specialist if Medicare is to reimburse payment. Referrals are made as a result of an examination or otherwise based upon professional judgment and cannot be backdated.
Extra Medicare benefits are now available to eligible patients who have registered with the Australian Government’s MyMedicare. To register or learn more about how MyMedicare can benefit you, click here.
When registering online, if you cannot find our clinic in the list of medical centres that are registered with MyMedicare, please check back later in the month, as we may still be going through the set-up process in the system.
We are currently not able to accept new patients due to being at capacity. We hope to re-open new patient bookings in the very near future.
Please check back soon, or call us on 7485 4000 if you have any queries.
As of 17th July 2023, our fees have increased slightly. There will be a small gap payment on all consults for those who are over the age of 16 and do not have a concession.
Bulk billing will also no longer be available on weekends.
WHY IS THERE A GAP?
The Medicare rebate does not fully cover the cost of providing good quality care. The rebate has been kept at the same level for many years whilst costs have increased much more. Therefore, from 1 January 2023, you will need to pay a gap fee for your consult. Please click here for more information.
