Practice Consultation Fees

As of November 1 2019 appointements at our Medical Clinic will include a co-payment. 

Our aim at Edenhope Hospital Medical Clinic is to provide the community with the best care and service through our Doctor’s professional and experienced care.

Whilst our wish would be to continue to provide a pure bulk-billing service to the community, it is not viable for us to do so without effecting these services in the long term.  

Our fees are structured to reflect the time you spend in your consultation as well as the number and complexity of matters discussed during this time.

*Limited bulk-billing appointments will still be available for certain types of consultations.

Fee Structure

Fees are payable at the time of the consultation by cash, credit card or EFTPOS. Accounts are unfortunately not able to be given.
Our practice is equipped with TYRO Medical Easyclaim which allows us to directly lodge your receipt for Medicare refunds, saving time for patients.

*Deferred accounts will incur an administration charge of $10-$12.

        * Patients exempt from gap payment (Routinely bulk billed)

  • Eligible Veterans Affairs (DVA) card holders
  • Children under 16 years of age with a concession card
  • Children under 16 years of age for routine childhood vaccination-only visits

Additional Charges

Please note that all patients may be charged for some services and consumables, for example:

  • Patients requiring regular wound dressings may need to be provided with an approved dressing pack. A schedule of fees will be advised for these at the time of your consultation.

If you require a repeat on your medication, we strongly advise that you arrange an appointment in advance. Requests of repeat scripts without a GP consultation, fees will apply as follows:
