APPOINTMENT INFORMATION 

13-SICK.jpg

Please phone 8296 0122 or Book Online for an appointment

We provide traditional face-to-face clinic and Telehealth consultations.

 

Please book a TeleHealth (phone) consultation if you have a fever, cough or cold symptoms or any risk factors for COVID-19.

Pricing Information

Seacombe Medical Centre provides high quality medical care for our patients.

Most traditional clinic appointments and telehealth consultations will be privately billed as outlined below. 

We will continue to provide no gap (bulk-billed) consultations for:

  • Children 15 years and younger 

  • Veterans DVA Gold Card Holders

  • Seniors annual health assessments

  • Booked GP management plans 

  • Immunisation appointments with a Registered Nurse

Schedule of Fees from 1st January 2024 for surgery and telehealth appointments:

                     

 

                                               

A NON-ATTENDANCE FEE OF $42 WILL APPLY FOR PATIENTS WHO DO NOT ATTEND THEIR APPOINTMENT OR CANCEL WITH LESS THAN 1 HOURS NOTICE. FUTURE APPOINTMENTS WILL BE UNABLE TO BE BOOKED UNLESS THIS FEE HAS BEEN PAID.

 

Payment in full is required at the time of consultation.

 

Bulk billing (no gap) is restricted to the following patients:

 

  • Children under 16 with a valid Medicare care card

  • Veterans Pension card holders

  • Nursing home patients

Concession Fee is available for the following patients:

 

  • Patients with a pension card

  • Patients with a health care card

  • Patients who are full time students, aged 16 or older, with a current student card

 

Commonwealth Senior Card holders will NOT be eligible for discounted consultations, unless they also have a valid concession card.

Our fee structure remains competitive, with gap payments for privately billed consultations less than those of the majority of other practices that are facing similar Medicare cuts and lower than the Australian Medical Association’s recommended rates. We will continue to offer reduced gaps to patients with current pension and Health Care Cards.

Medicare can deposit the rebate into your designated bank account within 48 hours. Payments can be made by cash, EFTPOS or credit card. Additional information is available from our reception staff.

 

A standard consultation is approximately 15 minutes. Longer face to face consultations have higher fees as well as higher Medicare rebates, with the gap payment being similar. If you require a longer appointment, please arrange this at the time of booking. Please note that Medicare has stopped funding longer telehealth consultations at the higher rebate so larger gap fees will apply for long telehealth consultations.

To be eligible for a Medicare Rebate for a TeleHealth consult you must have seen a GP in the clinic in the previous 12 months. This is a requirement from Medicare.

From 1st October 2020 Medicare require you to visit our medical centre and have a face-to face consult for your first visit to be eligible for a Medicare payment. If you choose to have a Telehealth appointment as your first visit a private fee with no rebate will be charged.

 

Unfortunately we are unable to accept new patients at this time.
