South West Medical Centre is a private billing facility; however bulk billing may occur at the discretion of the Doctor.
Patients with Pension Cards or DVA Cards must show their entitlement card to receive bulk billing consultations. Health Care Card holders may be billed at a reduced rate at the doctors discretion.
Consultation fees must be paid on the day of the consultation.
A full list of fees is available in the waiting room.
If your GP refers you to an external provider, out of pocket expenses may apply. We encourage all patients to asks about the out of pocket expenses prior to making appointments with other services providers and if cost is a barrier please discuss alternatives (ie Public v’s Private) with your GP
We ask that if you are unable to attend an appointment that you contact reception staff as soon as possible to cancel or reschedule your appointment. You are required to provide at least 1 hours prior notice when cancelling your appointment.
Should you not cancel your appointment within the timeframe, South West Medical Centre will issue a penalty fee of $20 which must be paid in full prior to any further appointments being booked.
