Fees

Glebe Hill Family Practice is a privately billing practice

Fees and Medicare rebates vary depending on the length and complexity of the consultation and are ultimately determined by the Doctor at the end of the consultation.

Payment is required in full on the day of consultation and will be processed immediately after your appointment. We require an eligible credit or debit card at the time of booking an appointment for pre-authorisation of payment. This card will be used to process your payment. Your Medicare rebate, if applicable, will be submitted online to Medicare on your behalf and refunded into your nominated bank account by Medicare. If you would prefer to pay by cash please advise our Reception team at the completion of your consultation.

Please be aware that any outstanding accounts may attract an administration fee and any associated costs for debt collection by an external third party will be the responsibility of the patient and in addition to the initial account.

The following information applies to consultations with our General Practitioners. More information about fees for Allied Health Professionals is available at our reception.
