Changes to our billing

As from 1st November 2018 we will be increasing our fees and changing the way we bill your consultation and wound care accounts.

As a private specialist practice, we provide outstanding, advanced wound care to our outpatients and hyperbaric patients and, as such, we will no longer bulk bill our fees, we will be adopting the AMA doctor rates. Please see the table of fees below.

To make the Medicare claiming process easier for our patients we have installed an Integrated Medicare two way claim system through our medical software program.

We will receipt your services and your rebate will be paid to your account, usually overnight.  You should be aware that the cost of treatment will be in excess of the amount Medicare will reimburse.

If you have any questions or would like more information about this please contact us to talk to one of our reception staff.
