New Fees

Dec 20, 2019

Diggers Rest Medical Centre’s first priority is our patients. Our doctors have our patient’s best interests in mind at all times.

As of the 1st of January 2020, Diggers Rest Medical Centre’s policy for new patients will change. To help our doctors provide the best care possible, as of the date above, your first visit at the clinic as a new patient will NOT be bulk billed and our current registration fee will no longer be charged. Patients with valid Medicare Cards will be able to claim a Medicare benefit and receive a rebate to partially cover the cost as follows:

New Patients

  • Standard Consult Fee for New Patients (First Visit) = $75.00 (Medicare Rebate = $38.20)
  • Long Consult Fee for New Patients (First Visit) = $99.00 (Medicare Rebate = $73.95)

Subsequent visits will be bulk billed as usual.

Infants under 12 months and Pensioners are exempt from the new fees

Workcover

Fees for New Workcover Claims:

  • Standard Consult = $75.00 (Workcover Rebate = $60.67)
  • Long Consult = $120.00 (Workcover Rebate = $111.24)

For more information please call us on 03 9012 7301

PLEASE NOTE

As of Monday 30th March, ALL consultations will occur via Telehealth (phone or video call consultation with the GP) - no patients will be permitted into the clinic unless they have attained prior approval by the GP.

Telehealth now covers more essential services such as Chronic Disease Management, Health Assessment, Mental Health treatment, repeat scripts, referrals, test results and more.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to our friendly receptionists on (03) 9012 7301
