Important notes

  • Full payment of the private fee is expected at the end of each consultation, after which you will then receive your Medicare rebate.
  • A non-attendance fee will apply if you do not provide at least two hours’ notice of your cancellation, and this fee will need to be paid prior to next seeing a doctor.
  • All patients 18 years of age and under Health Care Card, and 70 years of age and over with a Pensioner Concession Card will be bulk billed.
  • All patients between the ages of 19 and 69 years of age with a Health Care Card or Pension Card will have a 25% discount applied to private billing for medical services and some procedures.
  • All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients with a health care card will be bulk billed.
  • Health Care Card holders must carry their valid card with them to all appointments.

Saturday Appointments

As of 1 July 2023, appointments on Saturdays will incur an additional charge of $5 and bulk billing policies will no longer apply. Those holding health care cards or pension cards will be charged at a reduced rate.
These changes are to help cover the costs of remaining open on a Saturday so we can continue to provide our patients with weekend appointments.
Thank you for your understanding and support.

Telehealth

To be eligible for Medicare rebates on telehealth fees you must have had a face to face appointment in the clinic in the last 12 months. Please note that there may be circumstances when your doctor will need to arrange a face-to-face consultation after your Telehealth consultation, in order to complete their assessment and examination.

Adelaide Health Care requires private billing for telehealth consultations in line with all consultation costs. This means that there may be a fee payable for your phone consultation. You will receive a phone call from our reception staff after your consultation to make the payment.

Additional Fees

This Practice prides itself on providing high quality care and as a result there may be additional costs for the following:

  • Treatment room fee for clinical procedures
  • Brief treatment room nurse appointments
  • Wound care products and other consumable items
  • Specific administrative requests

For more details please discuss with Reception Staff or your Doctor
