Our Fees
The Town Medical Centre is a Private Billing Practice; all Standard Consultation Fees are displayed at the Reception Desk. Age Pensioners and Veteran Affairs patients may be bulk-billed; it is the doctor’s discretion to charge a fee if considered appropriate. Other pensioners and Health Care Cardholders may be charged for services provided. Any patients who are genuinely financially disadvantaged should discuss this with the treating doctor and there may be a reduction in the standard fee at the Doctor’s discretion.

Any consultations taking longer than the standard fifteen-minute consultation (Item 23) will be charged according to the fee scale shown in the practice. There may be a reduction in this fee depending on the time spent with the patient and the complexity of matters discussed.

All accounts are to be settled on the day of appointment unless alternate arrangements have been made prior to the appointment time. Any concerns regarding fees should be discussed with the treating doctor not reception staff.
