Why don't we bulk bill everyone?

More and more General Practices are charging a gap fee when you visit your GP.

Due to the rising costs of running and operating a Medical Centre, you may be required to pay for your appointment, and be reimbursed the Medicare Rebate.

What bulk billing is

Bulk billing means you don’t have to pay for your medical service from a health professional. They bill us instead and they accept the Medicare benefit as full payment for the service.

At Mediclinic, we bulk bill your consultations if you have a valid concession card and Medicare provide a "Direct Billing Incentive" which supports us in Bulk Billing you.

Bulk billing is great and please remember that it is not mandatory for providers to bulk bill anyone, and if they bulk bill it's because they choose to.

Our Fees

We charge a very reasonable gap fee, where you will be reimbursed around 65% from Medicare. We offer on the spot Medicare Rebates via our Tyro machine. The Medicare Rebate is returned to your Debit Card within 11 seconds.

Does this seem new to you?

A GP from Rural QLD goes into some great detail about bulk billing and why her clinic can't do it anymore. If you have the time, it's a great watch and provides some insight into the healthcare system.
