Notice to all patients of Hall Road Medical Centre
From 1st August 2021, our Clinic will be introducing mixed billing, and as such, fees may apply.
At Hall Road Medical Centre, the quality of care that you receive is a product of the relentless effort, expertise and dedication of our team and modern well-equipped clinic. Unfortunately, the reality is that Medicare bulk-billing rebates no longer cover the cost of providing high quality care. The costs of running a practice (such as staff wages, practice rent, cost of specialised equipment, resources and IT, electricity, water, insurances and so on) increase every year, but the Medicare return to practices hasn’t kept up with changing times and, in fact, some rebates have been reduced or cut altogether, making it impossible to sustain a quality practice on bulk-bill fees alone. For this reason, we are now a private billing practice although we do bulk bill a significant amount of our services.
Your out of pocket cost will be kept to a minimum, we will reimburse your Medicare rebate where applicable before leaving the clinic.
For more information about these fees, please ask one of our team.
