In this case you will only pay the gap fee.

We cannot process DVA claims for daytime GP visits as the DVA bulk billing rates do not cover the costs of the visit. DVA patients must instead claim on Medicare and pay a gap (see above).

Telehealth

The fee for telehealth depends on the length of the consultation and the start time of the consultation.

Consultation starting after 11pm

Urgent conditions

After 11pm there is a Medicare rebate for all patients with urgent conditions. In order to access this rebate Medicare requires the Doctor to justify that you have an urgent condition (i.e your condition is at risk of deteriorating before 8am the next morning). The consultation must take place over a video call rather than a standard phone call.

The rebate is significantly higher than for the standard rebates. So while the total fee you pay is higher your rebate is also higher by the same amount and the out of pocket gap amount is unchanged.

Urgent Telehealth Video consult after 11pm:

  • Non-Concession: $210.75 (inc. $49 Gap)
  • Concession: $200.75 (inc. $39 Gap)

Non-urgent conditions

If the Doctor cannot justify to Medicare that your condition is at risk of deterioration before 8am, they cannot charge the urgent item and the fees for consultations before 11pm will apply instead.

Determining what is urgent is difficult, as very little guidance is provided by Medicare. Our receptionists can run your issue past the doctor prior to your consultation and can let you know if you will be bulk billed or a fee will apply.

We understand this situation is not ideal but we are trying to do the best we can to help patients and operate within Medicare billing guidelines.

A fee of $159 is payable for patients with no health cover.

AFTER HOURS CARE

You don’t need to attend a clinic to receive GP care after hours. Our Home GPs can manage all of your urgent care needs in the comfort of your home.

AFTER HOURS GP SERVICES

Acute Worsening of Chronic Conditions

Short term management of asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes and other chronic medical conditions until you see your usual GP.

Injuries & Infections

Our Home GPs can treat gastroenteritis, respiratory illnesses, injuries, aches & pains, urinary tract, ear & skin infections – ensuring a quick recovery.

Certification and Referrals

Our GPs can provide medical and return to work certificates as well as specialist referrals.

Elderly Care

Our GPs are experts in providing care to older adults in the home environment. We take the time to understand your care needs and liaise with your support network and care providers to keep you safely at home and out of hospital.

Disability Care

Many people with disabilities can access a wide range of care providers at home via the NDIS, however traditionally Home GP care has been hard to access. Our Home GPs can work closely with you, your family and your supports to tailor our care provision to meet your requirements. 

Paediatric Care

Taking your unwell child to the GP or Emergency Department can be stressful and challenging, particularly for parents with multiple children.  Our Home GP visits offer a more pleasant and effective way to assess children, who are calmer and more comfortable in their own environment.

Common Illnesses We Treat

  • Respiratory
  • Asthma and COPD
  • Fever & Flu-like Symptoms
  • Sore Throat and Tonsillitis

Important information

If you’re enrolled in Medicare you’re eligible for the Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN). Once your out-of-pocket medical expenses reach the threshold (below) in a calendar year, Medicare will cover up to 80% of any further out-of-pocket expenses you have for out-of-hospital medical services that are subsidised under the MBS. You don’t need to register if you are an individual with no dependants. Medicare keeps a tally of all your out of pocket expenses and gap amounts. If you are part of a family or couple you will need to register online – that way you will reach the threshold sooner. You only have to register once.

EMSN Thresholds (2023)

$770.30 – Concession card holders or Family Tax Benefit Part A

$2,424 – All others
