From 4 November 2019 Warragul Family Medicine will be charging the following fees for our most common services.
Medicare will only provide a rebate for services performed by your GP or Nurse as part of a face-to-face consultation. A non-rebatable private fee of $25.00 applies for any services you request your clinician to perform without your attendance at a consultation (such as providing a script, referral or completing a form). Consultations under Workcover and TAC will be charged privately and there is no rebate from Medicare for these services.
Document Reprinting Fees
Your referral letters, prescriptions, pathology request forms, etc. are important documents. The reprinting of documents such as lost referral letters, lost scripts, and copies of specialist letters, misplaced pathology or radiology requests will incur a $10.00 administration fee (not Medicare refundable)
A Procedure Fee will be charged in addition to a consultation fee. Your doctor will discuss fees for procedures with you. Fees vary between $30 & $60 depending on time required for each procedure and are non- rebatable through Medicare.
Services that will attract a Procedure Fee include:
