Each year we review our fees on November 1st.
This coincides with the release of the new Medicare rebate by the Federal government. Unfortunately, the Medicare rebate for most services that we provide is below the rate of inflation and does not come close to matching the every increasing costs associated with running a practice.
We continue to strive towards limiting our fee increases, while continuing to provide the highest possible level of medical care. Please find attached a copy of her new fees:
Fees from 1st November 2012.

- Pensioner and Health Care Card holders Gap will remain at $20.00 3. Level C, D and the After Hours rate – a $2.00 increase will also be added.
