Emerald Medical Group is a mixed billing practice, which means that fees are at the discretion of each treating Physician. Patients with a valid concession card or DVA card are generally bulk billed for in hours consultations on weekdays or Saturday morning. Children presenting for immunisations are bulk billed with an eligible medicare card.
Payment is required at the time of your appointment and can be made via cash, EFTPOS, VISA or MasterCard. Medicare rebates can be organised at the time of payment if you have a cheque or savings account linked to a card with you or via overnight processing if you have your bank details linked at medicare.
BULK BILLED APPOINTMENTS
A number of bulk-billed appointments are available each weekday. However, after-hours consultations may attract a co-payment.
SPECIALIST APPOINTMENTS AND MEDICALS
Special services such as Coal Board Medicals and Fitness for Duty Assessments are billed at a fixed fee agreed prior to the service.
Visiting Allied Health Professional services and specialists usually charge a co-payment which will be communicated to their patient prior to their appointment
