FLU-VAX CLINICS - NOVAVAX - ADULT PFIZER - KID’S PFIZER ALL AVAILABLE More Info

Fees

As a private General Practice the doctor’s policy is that they do not routinely ‘bulk-bill’ and payment in full is required on the day of service.

All TeleHealth (phone/video) appointments incur our usual practice fees with the Medicare  Rebate coming back to your Medicare nominated bank account (usually within 2-48 hours).  When booking Telehealth online you will be asked to provide your card details for  payment*, and for bookings via phone our friendly receptionists will take your details so we  can take payment automatically after your appointment. All card details entered into our  system are encrypted. You can opt to have the details stored on our financial institutions server, or have it automatically deleted once payment has been taken.  *Children up to 17 years old will not incur a fee.

As with previous Telehealth appointments, in order to be eligible for the Medicare Rebate  you MUST have seen a GP face-to-face in the clinic in the last 12 months, with the exception  of children under 12 months of age. Any patent, including children up to 17 years of age,  who do not meet this criteria will incur a full fee, and no Medicare Rebate will apply.

At The Health Hub we believe quality of care is important. To address complex or multiple  matters you may require a longer appointment. It is important to the doctors at The Health  Hub that you have the time to discuss your concerns and health care. A gap fee facilitates  this.

Payments can be made by EFTPOS or Credit Card (VISA/MasterCard), and your Medicare  rebate will be transferred to your nominated bank account within 48 hours of your  appointment. If your financial institution rejects the auto debit for your doctor’s visit, our  Automated system will send you a link to pay your account. In this case you will need to send  your receipt to Medicare to receive your rebate. You can do this by signing into your MYGOV account and selecting Medicare; or by using the Medicare Express Plus app on your  smartphone; or at any Medicare office.

Consultation Fees

Each consultation will be charged a fee, including TeleHealth and results. · DVA gold card holders will be bulk-billed for all appointments

If you are experiencing financial difficulty we encourage you to discuss your situation with  your doctor or our friendly receptionists
