Fees

MALVERN MEDICAL CENTRE FEE POLICY - FEBRUARY 2020

Malvern Medical Centre is a private billing clinic. Fees vary depending on the duration and complexity of the service, the individual doctor and the concessional status of the patient.

Where private billing applies, full payment is required on the day via cash or credit/debit card (EFTPOS). Using the practice’s Tyro machines, the Medicare Rebate may be refunded onto the patient’s card on the same day. Alternatively, the rebate may be paid directly into the patient’s bank account within two working days if these details are supplied to Medicare.

BULKBILLING

Bulkbilling is at the GP’s discretion

Pensioners, Health Care Card Holders and children 15 years and under are typically bulkbilled for standard weekday consultations

Veterans' Affairs card holders are bulkbilled for all services

A Commonwealth Seniors Card is not a concession card and does not guarantee bulkbilling

Chronic disease management plans, time-based health assessments and home medication reviews are generally bulkbilled

Special consideration may be given to patients in genuine financial hardship and those requiring frequent appointments

PRIVATE BILLING

Private billing applies for all non-concessional patients

Saturday consultations are privately billed for all patients (excluding DVA), with a discounted gap fee of $20 for Pensioners, Health Care Card Holders and children 15 years and under

Private fees apply for all procedures, such as skin lesion excisions and iron infusions

Private non-Medicare fees apply for dressings and private vaccinations

Private fees apply for all patients without a Medicare card, with payment required in full on the day

Patients receiving a referral from their GP to attend a specialist appointment or procedure such as an X-ray, CT scan or MRI scan are advised to contact the provider’s rooms for details of any out of pocket expenses that may apply

All fees related to worker’s compensation and motor vehicle accident claims must be paid in full by the patient at the time of consultation
