How does the Medicare rebate work?

Depending on the service you access, you may receive a Medicare rebate. The reception team can process your Medicare rebate at the time of payment, so that it lands in your nominated bank account within 48 hours.

However, there is no bulk billing offered by your doctor after 6 pm weekdays or for weekend appointments, including children’s appointments.

Children 12 years and under are bulk billed at all times at the discretion of your doctor. Children 12 years and over incur a fee. Health Care Card holders and pensioners receive a discounted rate, but will still incur an out-of-pocket fee.

How the Medicare Rebates Work

Your doctor’s consultation fees are determined by the time and complexity of your visit and are payable on the day.

These fees may be partially offset by Medicare Rebates. Your final out-of-pocket cost is the initial fee minus any Medicare rebate you receive.



The service your GP provided

Each medical service is designated an item number. The complexity of your visit determines the item numbers billed.

For clarity on item numbers on your invoice, our reception team is here to assist you.



What the service will cost you

Consultation fees are set by your GP and are payable on the day of your visit.

The total cost reflects the comprehensive care provided. Your final out-of-pocket expense includes the fee minus your Medicare rebate.



How much Medicare will cover

Medicare Rebates are applicable for many services. We often process these instantly, crediting your account on the same day.

For certain services, please allow 2-5 working days for the rebate processing.



How much you will pay for the service

Your out-of-pocket cost is the balance after deducting the Medicare rebate from the initial fee for your GP's service.
