All allied health consultations billings are calculated depending on Doctor’s referrals and Medicare based referrals. Please call and speak to our administration team who will discuss the correct billing amount for your consultation.
Please note that it is expected that all accounts will be settled at the completion of the service. Patients with overdue accounts will only be further serviced with consultations when outstanding accounts are settled. For enquiries regarding your account or to arrange for a payment plan, please contact reception on 69226144 who will be able to discuss with you some payment options.

All other Doctors have agreed to follow this general practice policy if a patient holds the relevant concessions.
Please note that due to continuing problems with arrears in Workers Compensation cases, upfront payments are expected until claim numbers are approved by an insurer. Patients can then seek reimbursement from the insurance company dealing with the case. Please call 69226144 to discuss all Work Cover enquiries.
