Fees & Account Payment
We are not a bulk billing practice. However, doctors may choose to bulk bill at their discretion.
Most standard consultations will be charged at $72.00 – rebate from Medicare $37.60. This includes a $5-00 discount for payment on the day.
For longer appointments the charge will be at a higher rate.
Bulk billing is available to Veterans Affairs patients.
Card holders (pensioners, Social Security, sickness benefits) are given a discounted fee e.g. standard consult $54.80, the rebate from Medicare is $37.60.
All patients who receive after hours services will normally be charged a higher fee.
Please see the Reception staff for any queries regarding fees.
Accounts are to be paid in full at the time of consultation.
EFTPOS facilities are available.
Nuriootpa Medical Centre will send your Medicare Claim down line to HIC for your refund to be sent to you via mail, or with bank details to be paid into your account. Please bring your Medicare card in for all consultations. If you are having difficulty making payments for the consultations please discuss this with your Doctor or Practice Manager Sally Collins.
