HEALTH NEWS & UPDATES

 
 

APPOINTMENT INFORMATION 

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. 

Due to significant federal government cuts to Medicare support for bulk-billing, our billing policy changed on January 1st 2020 in order to allow us to continue to provide quality care in a sustainable way.

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

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.

 

The standard consultation fee is:

  • Standard fee $72 (gap is $33.25) 

  • Concession fee $58 (gap reduced to $19.25) 

The Medicare rebate is $38.75

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 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.

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.

New patients are welcome to Seacombe Medical Centre. Please phone our clinic on 8296 0122 or make a booking online to make your appointment. If possible, print and completed the New Patient Form below.

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.
