Billing and Fee Increase Information

We believe that the most effective way that we can care for your health is through a private billing practice. The Medicare rebate does not cover the full cost of providing you with high quality, personalised medical care.

The fees paid to your doctor go to the running costs of our practice: power, rent, receptionist wages, nurses, administration, medical supplies, insurance, and much more.

While these costs of running a general practice continue to rise, the rebates from the government have not. The government have had a freeze on rebate increases since 2014, and this freeze will continue until 2020. Southland Medical Centre has not increased fees since 2014.

To continue to provide our high quality of service and innovative health solutions, it is necessary to increase our fees. We have limited the increase to $2 on our standard and $5 on our long consultations. We strive to provide affordable healthcare, and over 80% of our other MBS services fees will remain unchanged. We will continue to bulk-bill children, and provide concession consultations for pensioners and Health Care Card holders.

If you have any hardship or other concerns, please talk to your Doctor to discuss payment options.

Fee Schedule

We are a mixed billing practice, offering bulk billing to all children under the age of 16 before 6pm on weekdays. Our consultations are charged depending on a number of factors including length, complexity of the problem and the issues involved.

After initial payment, your EFTPOS card can be swiped to enable the Medicare refund. The Medicare rebate is refunded instantly into your bank account.
