The clinic is a private billing practice and you will incur a co-payment above the Medicare rebate. Our practice policy requires all accounts to be paid in full on the day of consultation including Medicare rebate. Our reception staff will lodge your account to Medicare electronically on your behalf to claim your rebate. If you have registered your bank details with Medicare you should receive your rebate within 48 hours. We accept cash, Eftpos, Cheques, Credit Card (Amex and American Express may attract a higher processing fee).
Any other tests, treatments or procedures required to reach a diagnosis may attract an additional charge some of which are not claimable through Medicare. Private Health Insurance will only cover in hospital procedures and even then you may still incur a “gap” payment.
If you have any concerns/questions regarding your account please speak with one of our reception staff prior to your consultation, or with your Ophthalmologist at your consultation.
