*There are no changes in fees for our existing regular patients. However, the billing policy expires if unused for 12months, after which new billing policy will apply.

Please note Dr. Holly Pym follows the new billing policy for all the patients due to being a new doctor at the practice.

This practice is a mixed billing practice.

We Bulk Bill;

  • 15years of age and younger
  • Concession Card Holders over 65
  • Full Time Students with a valid Student ID and 25years of age and younger

Discounted fees apply to International Students Studying in Australia and health care card holders.

**Bulk billing eligibility provided by Turbot Street Medical Centre may not extend to additional tests such as radiology, pathology etc. To find out the costs of any referral from your GP, you should liaise directly with the referring partner.

We have agreements with a number of OSHC providers including AHM, BUPA, NIB, Allianz which means students only have to pay $13-$15 depending on the insurance provider. 

We have agreements with BUPA (OVC Cards) and NIB (IMAN cards) for working visa to charge the rebate amount directly to the insurance provider, which means the patients only need to pay the gap amount of about $38-$41.

If you have any questions about our billing policy, please contact our friendly reception team on 3236 3409.

Patients with a valid Medicare card are entitled to the rebate as outlined above. This can be claimed in real time at the practice after your consultation. 

If you do not have a Medicare Card, the chances are you are not an Australian citizen or a Permanent Resident. Dependent on what country you are from, you may be eligible to apply for a Medicare card. You will need to contact Medicare directly, as we are not a branch, but an independent practice. You may also be able to claim through your health insurance provider, it depends on the cover you have. Again, you will need to speak with your insurance provider directly.

We understand that time is a valuable asset. Therefore we try our best to stay on time, however, sometimes due to emergencies this is not possible. Our reception staff will do their best to inform you to keep you updated should a doctor be running late.

In return we ask that you help us stay on time by understanding difference between a standard consultation and a long consultation.
