Bulli Medical Practice is a not a bulk billing practice. It is the policy of the Practice that payment for consultation is made at the time of your appointment. We accept cash payments and have EFTPOS facilities available (debit and credit card – Visa and Mastercard but NOT American Express). Medicare rebates may be claimed in person at a Medicare office, or can be sent online directly to Medicare and you will have the option of receiving your rebate via cheque or direct deposit into your nominated bank account.
If an account is required, there is an additional administration fee of $15 which is not Medicare rebatable.
Your Doctor will inform you and reception staff of the fee to be charged for your consultation if other than a standard consultation fee (Level B). Please be advised that for longer appointments, where multiple health issues need to be addressed, an appropriate appointment length (Level C or D) should be made and the fee will be higher. Please discuss any payment issues with your doctor.
All workers compensation visits are payable on the day and will be charged at AMA recommended rates. You are entitled to claim back from your employer.
