The doctors at Medi7 Clayton privately bill. Doctor consultation fees are payable in full at the time of consultation by cash, EFTPOS, or credit card. Consultation fees are charged depending on a number of factors including length of consultation and complexity of services provided.
If you have a Medicare Card, Medicare will refund you a proportion of your appointment fee (Medicare rebate) and the remaining amount will be your out-of-pocket cost. Medicare rebates are available for most medical services and can be deposited into your savings or cheque account at the time of payment if you have a savings or cheque card with you. Alternatively, your Medicare rebate will be transmitted directly to Medicare, where the rebate will be reimbursed to your nominated bank.
Doctors will bulk bill their patients with a valid Medicare Card who are 16 years old and under, 75 years old and over, Pension card holders (blue card), or applicable Health Assessments and Chronic Disease Management Plans. For patients with a Health Care card, the after-hours doctors do not offer a concession, and the day doctors charge a $20 out-of-pocket fee for an appointment.
In addition to consultation fees, a materials fee will be charged for all dressings, materials used in procedures, contraceptives, and certain vaccines. The materials fee applies to all patients (including concession cardholders).
Patients with financial difficulties should speak with reception staff prior to an appointment, either in person or via telephone.
