Indooroopilly Family Practice is a mixed billing practice.
There is no bulk-billing or discounting on Saturdays or Thursday evenings.
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.
Our fees are set slightly below the recommended AMA rates:
|CONSULTATION TYPE||FEE||DISCOUNTED FEE||MEDICARE REBATE|
|Standard Consultation (<15 minutes)||$82.00||$70||$39.10|
|Long Consultation (>15 minutes)||$120.00||$110||$75.75|
|Saturday or Thursday night (<15 minutes)||$92.00||$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 will no longer be universally bulk-billed due to recent Medicare changes. We are still offering this service, however, at our private billing rates and normal Medicare rebates apply (if you have visited our clinic in the past 12 months).
We will continue to bulk-bill Aged Pensioners and children under 12 during standard business hours and those with COVID/respiratory symptoms. Discounts, where eligible, still apply.
