Fees

Billing

At Elermore Vale Medical Centre we are a private billing practice and payment is required at the time of your consultation. Common fees are listed in the Fee Schedule below. The following updated fee schedule will be applied from 27/11/2023.

Due to the recent increase in incentive for bulkbilling by Medicare for the some consultation items, we will bulkbill the eligible items for

  1. children under 16
  2. HCC/ pension card holders over 70 years of age.

Please be respecfully informed that you may be billed some discounted fees

  • if you are HCC/ pension card holders under 70 (OR)
  • if the consultation items are not eligible for the increase incentive from Medicare.

Our receptionists can process your Medicare rebate at the time of payment on the spot or process it through Medicare automatically into your nominated bank account within 48 hours. You need to register your nominated bank account with Medicare directly. You will require a current and valid Medicare card to claim a rebate.
