Medical consultation fees

Sheehans Medical Centre is a mixed billing clinic

We bulk bill pensioners, DVA gold card holders, and children under the age of 16 during weekdays before 5:30pm.  All other, non-concessional, patients need to pay a fee.

 

In addition, on weekdays after 5:30pm or on Saturday, all patients need to pay a fee, with the exception of children under 16. 

 

Our fees are substantially less than the AMA recommended fees.  Every effort is made to keep consults efficient and affordable.

 

All private fees must be paid at the time of consultation. Acceptable methods of payment include cash, cheque, EFTPOS and credit cards (VISA and Master). 

 

Regarding telehealth appointment

To qualify for medicare rebates, you will need to have seen a doctor here face to face within the last 12 months.

 

If you have seen a doctor here face to face in the last 12 months, and qualify for concession (ie. if you have a pension / HCC / DVA gold card, or for children under 16 y.o.), you will continue to be bulkbilled for in hours consultations.

 

Private fees applies to all non-concessional telehealth consults.
