In order for us to maintain and provide quality care and equipment, and to service the community, fees apply.
A copy of our fee schedule and billing policy is located at reception. All patients will need to finalise their accounts at the time of consultation.
Noosa General Practice is a mixed billing practice
We charge $80 for a standard consultation, a higher fee will be charged for a long or procedural consultation. However if you hold a current Pension Card (Card Holders must present card at each visit) you will be bulk billed.
This also applies to children 15 years and under. Healthcare card holders we charge $60.
DVA Card Holders are billed directly to Veteran Affairs.
Please Note: A higher consultation fee is charged for visitors and overseas patients; however this does attract a higher Medicare Rebate.
Payment facilities include Eftpos, MasterCard, visa and cash.
Please ask at reception for a full explanation in relation to our fees if required.
Patients Participation and Inclusion in decisions about their Health Care
Our doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers inform their patients of
the purpose, importance, benefits, risks and possible costs of proposed
investigations referrals or treatments, including medicines and medicine
safety. We believe that patients need to receive sufficient information to
allow them to make informed decisions about their care.
