General Information
 

Private Billing From May 2018



15th March 2018

Dear Valued Clients,

Avoca Street Medical Centre will become a primarily private billing practice from 1st May 2018.

The reasons for this change in billing policy are:

  • Rising cost of running a modern medical practice: electricity, WHO-standard vaccine fridge maintenance, software and computer maintenance, accreditation fees, staff traning and wages, office overheads, etc.
  • Medicare rebate freeze: The Australian government has frozen Medicare rebate since 2015. The expected minimal rebate increase in August 2018 is not keeping up with the rising cost of running a GP practice.

Our staff can help send your claim to Medicare via secure internet. Once processed, your Medicare benefit will be deposited directly onto the EFTPOS card you used, or into the bank account you have registered with Medicare.

A limited number of clients will continue to be offered bulk billing, including:

  • Veteran Affairs clients.
  • Pensioners, Health Care Card holders - who have been seen at this practice regularly since before 2011.
  • Children under 16 years of age - who or whose parents have been seen at this practice regularly since before 2011.

We understand that this policy change will somewhat affect you financially but hope that you support our struggle to maintain high level of medical services for you.

Please leave comments at our feedback page on www.avocastreet.com.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Avoca Street Medical Centre management team.
