Changes to our Billing Structure:
Unfortunately, the current government funding system for bulk-billed services has become unsustainable for general practice. We, like many other Practices across Australia, have had to make the difficult decision to bill more of our patients, or risk closing our practice due to insufficient funding.
Our fees reflect the time taken and the degree of complexity of each consultation. This means you may have some out-of-pocket costs associated with your GP attendances/services. The introduction of Mixed billing means we will have both private billing and bulk billing options at our clinic.
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to sustain 100% bulk billing as the amount set by the Government does not cover the cost of providing a high-quality medical service.
We have done our very best to keep costs as low as possible so we can continue to be an accessible provider for our valued patients. The Australian Medical Association (AMA) recommended rate for a consultation of less than 20 minutes is $84.00. Under our updated billing policy, the out-of-pocket cost for a standard appointment is around $35, which is still considerably less than AMA recommendations.
