Medicare Eligible Routine Services are Bulk Billed
We are proud to offer bulk billing (no gap) for routine Medicare eligible services. Any Medicare eligible patient will be able to nominate at the time of booking that they prefer a no-gap service.Bulk bill patients will have no “out-of-pocket” costs to pay on the day of their appointment.
A limited number of private appointments are held to enable early access, more personal choice for day and time, to obtain a non-standard appointment combination or a longer than standard appointment duration. Patients have the choice at the time of booking if they would like a private
appointment. A gap fee is charged for these appointments.
What is a Gap Fee?
A gap fee is the difference between the fee we charge for our private appointments and the Medicare Rebate. The gap fee varies based on the type of examination performed. The gap fee will be communicated at the time of booking.
What if I hold a Pension or Health Care Card?
You will be eligible to be bulk billed for routine services, however, for some complex procedures or investigations not covered by Medicare a private fee applies. Details will be provided at the time of booking.
How do I pay my account?
No “out-of-pocket” payment is required for bulk billed no-gap services. Payment for private appointments is preferred on the day and we accept EFTPOS, credit card, cash, cheque, and BPay payments for your convenience.
If your radiology examination occurred or is planned to occur during a hospital stay or in a Day Procedure Unit, please refer to our Inpatient Billing Policy Guide.
Patients who anticipate financial difficulties are asked to discuss their specific situation with staff at the time of booking. Pension or Health Care Card holders will be bulk billed where possible, and payment plans can be arranged.
