Parramatta Medical Centre is a BULK BILLING practice for all patients with a valid Australian Medicare Card.
***** IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PROPOSED MEDICARE $7 CO-PAYMENT:
The Australian Government has recently proposed a compulsory $7 co-payment to be paid by patients when they visit their GP or access other Medicare funded services such as pathology and radiology imaging.
Please be advised that this proposal has NOT YET passed through parliament. As such, we continue to be BULK-BILLING for for all patients with a valid Australian Medicare Card.
Private Patients Billing Policy
Private patients and patients without a Medicare Card will be charged according to time and complexity of consult. The fee will be up to the discretion of the treating doctor. We kindly ask that you pay the basic consult first and if additional charge is required, that will be collected at the end of the consultation.
**OUR FEES ARE AS FOLLOWS for all private patients WITHOUT A MEDICARE CARD:
Monday to Friday Consultations
For your convenience we provide EFTPOS/Credit Card (Debit/Visa/Mastercard) and HICAPS (Health Fund) facilities.
Our practice welcomes patients with Work Cover issues, but the decision to take on cases is done on an individual basis and up to the treating doctor.
Please be aware some services are not covered under Medicare and may attract a private fee. These include services such as Medical Reports, Certain Drivers Licensing Reports (such as commercial licenses), Insurance Forms, Pre-employment Checks and Legal Reports. Your doctor will advise you of any fees prior to commencement.
