Fees

Your Health Hub is a private billing practice

Fees will vary depending on the length of time you spend with the doctor, the complexity of your medical condition and the doctor you see.

The fees below are indicative of fees billed by doctors in the Practice but patients should be aware that individual doctors may bill at slightly different rates.

Payment is required on the day of the consultation, by cash or card.

Your Medicare Rebate is refunded instantly into your bank account when paying electronically.

The following information applies to consultations with our General Practitioners. More information about fees for our Allied Health Practitioners is available at reception.

Cancellations

From time to time, circumstances arise whereby you are not able to keep an appointment. Should this happen, we ask that you cancel your appointment by calling our receptionists at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time. This allows other patients the opportunity to make an appointment.

Failure to do so will result in a non-attendance fee of $50.00 for a standard consultation or $70.00 for an extended consultation which will not be able to claimed from Medicare.

Procedures

Procedures may incur a gap of $50-$400 depending on the nature and complexity of the procedure. Your Doctor will discuss the fee with you when your procedure is being arranged. Fees will also apply for some consumables such as wound dressings. These fees are not able to be claimed from Medicare. 

Scripts and Replacement Referrals

Prescriptions and replacement referrals will not be issued without a consultation. This could be a PHONE consultation or FACE TO FACE consultation.

*** A fee will be charged for all prescriptions or referrals that are issued outside of a consultation and these are in case of emergency only – not routinely. The fee is $20.

Other Fees

Fees apply for prescriptions without an appointment, and some consumables such as wound dressings and disposable instruments.

This fee is not able to be claimed from Medicare.
