Fees

Eastern Shore Doctors is a private billing practice and fees are payable at the end of the consultation.

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.

Our indicative fees (as at July 2017) are as follows;

Standard Consultation- Item 23 (15 minutes)$85.00*$37.05 rebate from Medicare
Extended Consultation - Item 36 (20 – 30 minutes)$145.00*$71.70 rebate from Medicare
Prolonged Consultation – Item 44 (> 40 minutes)$198.00*$105.55 rebate from Medicare

*Concession Card holders & pensioners attract a discount.

Some medical consumables used as part of your treatment, such as dressings, may attract a separate fee.

Travel Clinic consultations

Extended Travel Consultation with individualised Travel Health Plan (1 hour)$185.00$71.70 rebate from Medicare

Mulitple family members attending for a combined Travel Consultation will not all be charged the full fee noted above.

Our fees are determined by Practice Policy and are reviewed annually.

Bulk Billing Arrangements

Children 12 years and under (weekdays only) and DVA Gold Card holders will be bulk billed.    

Sunday and Public Holiday Consultations

Higher fees apply on Sundays and on Public Holidays. Please check fees with our Reception staff.

Payment Terms

It is practice policy that all accounts are settled in full on the day of your consultation.

Payments may be made by cash, cheque, EFTPOS and credit card (Mastercard and Visa card cards accepted). Upon payment of your account, our staff will lodge your claim with Medicare. Provided you have your bank details registered with Medicare, your rebate will be forwarded directly into your nominated bank account within four days. This will overcome the need for you to visit a Medicare office.

Cancellations

From time to time, circumstances arise whereby you are not able to keep an appointment. In this event, we ask that you cancel your appointment by calling our receptionists at least 2 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 $35.00 for a standard or $50.00 for an extended consultation which will not be able to be claimed from Medicare.
