Practice Information & Fees

Armstrong Heath is a mixed billing clinic. Pensioners and Children under 16 years old attract a discount. We bulkbill individuals 85 years and older. All patients will need to finalise their accounts at the time of consultation. Payments can be accepted in the form of cash, EFTPOS, MasterCard or Visa. Medicare rebates can be claimed from Medicare instantly into the patient’s bank account if they provide an EFTPOS card at the time of payment or via online patient claiming.
Mental health consultations and medical reports attract different fees. Some procedures, dressings, vaccines and other items may also incur a separate fee. Please ask at reception for a full explanation in relation to our fees if required.
Patients attending for Work Cover and Transport Accident Claims are charged a private fee. A receipt will be issued so that the patient can claim reimbursement from the employer or the TAC.
Medical examinations such as for insurance, pre-employment, taxi driver’s licenses, truck driver’s licenses and superannuation purposes do not attract a Medicare rebate and must be paid for at the time of the consultation.
The following is provided as a basic guide to common fees based on the Medicare rebates for consultations with one of our general practitioners as of May 2017.
