Unfortunately and due to the fact that the increase of Medicare rebates for medical consultations, and other medical services, is not consistent with the increase of costs associated with running a medical practice, we have no choice but to modify the way we charge our patients.
We now Privately bill anyone over the age of 16 that does not hold a concession / pension card from Centrelink.
All children under 16 years of age that have a Medicare number will be bulk billed, as well as any adult patient that holds a pension / concession card from Centrelink.
Patients can access the following via Hot Doc:
Payments can be made for privately billed telehealth consultations
Patients can request prescriptions from Dr Elton Chen
