Better Health Greenhills is a mixed billing practice. We bulk bill aged pensioners over the age of 65 who have a health care card or pension concession card from centrelink, along with DVA card holders and children under 5 years.
Unfortunately, government funding cuts in primary health care means that it is no longer possible to bulk bill only for all patients. In order to continue providing quality health care to our patients, we have introduced a fee structure.
Standard consultation: $75 (up to 15 minutes)
Concession card holders $60
Long consultation: $115
Concession card holders $100
*Two members of one family on the same day paying full fee: one will be charged the lesser fee of $60
*Does not apply to skin checks & excisions or procedural work
*Children under 0-5 years old: bulk billed
*Children aged from 5 to 16 will be charged $60
*Health care card, DVA and Pension card holders over 65 will continue to be bulk billed
*Patients with a health care card or pension card from Centrelink from 5 to 64 will be charged $60
Payment expected at the time of consultation and can be paid by cash, EFTPOS or credit card. Fees are determined by individual doctors according to the length and complexity of each consultation. Workers compensation patients must have their claim number ready for each consultation. Doctors will use their discretion to bulk bill any patient.
