Fees & Cancellations

We aim to be open and transparent with fees we charge for our services.  

We believe we provide a high level comprehensive and compassionate assessment of your respiratory and sleep health.  We take the time each patient needs to ensure we understand their needs and explain the suggested management plan.  Our fees reflect this service. 

Pensioner rates available to Australian government-issued Pensioner Concession Card holders by displaying your card, and are roughly a 50% discount in out-of-pocket costs compared to our standard fee. 

We do not offer concession rates at this time to Healthcare Card holders, however these patients may be eligible for higher refunds for medical expenses through the Medicare Safety Net.

 

Our highest priority is to ensure continued access to medical care.  If you are struggling with financial hardship, or find the upfront cost difficult, please mention this at the time of booking, during consultation with our doctors or to one of our helpful receptionists, as we may be able to arrange a reduced fee.

We can process your claim for a Medicare Rebate on your behalf and have Medicare deposit it directly into your bank account if you have pre-registered your details with Medicare.  Alternatively, you can be issued with a receipt allowing you to claim the rebate from Medicare. 

Non Medicare-Eligible Patients

If you do not have a medicare card, are from overseas, or are attending for a workplace assessment, you will not be able to claim a medicare rebate and full amounts will apply.

Fees for Scripts & Telephone calls

From 2023, Medicare provides minimal reimbursement for telephone-only consultations with physicians  (Video-consultations are still reimbursed at the rates listed above under 'consultation') and patients will generally be entitled to higher rebates for face to face or videoconferencing.

As such, the follow rates apply for patients requesting a repeat script, phone advice or clarification.  Times listed includes the time of the phone call, plus time off the phone chasing results or generating referrals.  Most repeat prescriptions can also be written by your referring General Practitioner.

and there is no need to cancel the appointment.
