Bulk billing medical centre

Why are there gap fees?
Medicare is an Australian public health insurance scheme. It provides a rebate to you when you access an eligible health service. However, this rebate may not cover the total cost of the service. If you are bulk billed, it means that the clinic is accepting the Medicare rebate as full payment for the service. 

The reality is that Medicare rebates do not cover the cost of providing you with a high quality service. This is due to the Medicare freeze between 2013-2017 and indexation of services lower than the inflation rate. The fees charged by this clinic have to cover all of our practice costs: including rent, medical equipment, electricity, computers, insurance and employment of our receptionists, doctors and nurses.

Thank you for your support.
