Here at Indooroopilly Family Practice, we believe that the doctors and staff offer excellent medical care at all times. As with all businesses, this practice has high running costs and therefore it is not possible to offer full Bulk Billing to everyone.
We do bulk-bill Aged Pensioner Concession Card holders (65 years +) and children under 12 years.
Discounted fees are offered to patients who hold a current Health Care Card, Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, Pensioner Concession Card (aged under 65 years) and full-time students.
There is no bulk-billing or discounting on Saturdays or Thursday evenings.
Our fees are set in line with the recommended AMA rates:
|CONSULTATION TYPE||FEE||DISCOUNTED FEE||MEDICARE REBATE|
|Standard Consultation (<15 minutes)||$86.00||$74||$39.10|
|Long Consultation (>15 minutes)*||$124.00||$114||$75.75|
|Saturday or Thursday night (<15 minutes)||$96.00||$39.10|
*It is important to note that the out-of-pocket cost for a Long Consultation is not much more than a Standard Consultation. In this way, we hope to encourage patients to book longer appointments for more complex or multiple health issues, as this helps us to avoid running late, ensuring shorter waiting times.A full list of fees is available on request at Reception.
As usual, all billing is at the discretion of our doctors.
Phone appointments are offered at our private billing rates and normal Medicare rebates apply (if you have visited our clinic in the past 12 months). Aged Pensioners and children under 12 will be Bulk-billed during standard business hours. Discounts, where eligible, still apply.
