FEES

WFMP is a private billing practice,  fees are payable at the time of consultation.  We accept cash, cheque, MasterCard, Visa or Eftpos. For your convenience our reception team can process your Medicare rebate immediately upon payment.

Standard consultation: $80.00  (rebate $38.75)

Telehealth consultation: $80.00 (rebate 38.75) 

Long consultation: $140.00 (rebate $75.05)

A list of usual fees charged is displayed in the waiting room. Additional fees will apply if a procedure or test is done by your doctor during the consultation, eg  Spirometry test, minor surgery and dressings.  If you cancel an appointment, please let us know in sufficient time to transfer the appointment to someone on the wait list.

A surcharge will be applied to outstanding accounts to cover the costs of debt recovery.

PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS

Repeat prescriptions without an appointment may be given as long as this is in your best interest (such as maintenance treatment of long-standing conditions). Prescriptions will only be given without consultation if the medication was prescribed by a doctor who is working at this practice and you have been seen by one of the doctors in the last 3 months. Please give us 3 working days notice.

A charge of $10.00 will be made for repeat prescriptions without a consultation.

BULK BILLING

Consultations for Veterans and some pensioners may be bulk-billed at the discretion of the treating doctor.

MEDICARE ON-LINE CLAIMING

After you have paid your account in full, we can submit the claim to Medicare on your behalf, via a secure Internet connection. If you have given your bank details to Medicare, your Medicare rebate will be paid into your nominated account within 2 working days. You can register online at www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/online or by visiting your local Medicare office. For your protection, the practice does not submit or retain any patient banking information.

SPECIALIST REFERRALS

Specialist referrals need prior discussion and examination unless they are for on-going treatment.

For all referrals requested over the phone or without a consultation, patients need to have been seen by a Doctor in this practice within the last 3 months, and there is a $15 fee for referrals.

Please give us 3 working days notice. Please obtain your referral before visiting your specialist, as we do not fax referrals to specialists. We cannot backdate referrals.
