Bulk Billing is available for services payable by Medicare to all who hold a current Medicare and Veterans' Affair Card.

OVERSEAS VISITOR & STUDENT CARDS

Drs @ Wellington Point have an agreement with BUPA, NIB and Medibank, to bulk bill any patient with current insurance. This means, the patient will have no out of pocket expense for any items covered under Medicare

WORK COVER

WorkCover consultations are billed to the appropriate WorkCover organisation. Please provide your WorkCover institution details if applicable.

CONTUNITY OF CARE

Our doctors are concerned with continuity in the provision of quality care. It is important as it involves ongoing health care management toward the shared goal of high quality and effective medical care. We encourage patients to stay with a GP or practice in order to avoid fragmentation of their healthcare needs.

MISSED APPOINTMENTS ?

Non-attendance of an appointment or cancellation with less than 2 hours notice may incur a non-attendance fee of $75 and upwards (the cost of one private consultation). This fee must be paid before another appointment can be scheduled.  As of 1st July 2021, we will be implementing a “No Show” fee of $100. This fee will be charged if you do not attend 3 appointments in a row. This fee must be paid before another appointment can be scheduled.
