PATIENT INFO

 Fees and Payment

Era Health is a private billing practice and fees are payable at the time of consultation for all services other than those requested by a company.
Our fees are determined by a combination of economic factors including the Australian Medical Association and the Australian Dental Association recommended rates and costs associated with running a practice.
The fees listed below are indicative only of fees billed by our health professionals. Charges will vary depending on the length of time you spend with the professional and the complexity of your health condition.

* The Medicare rebate for non-vocationally (non-VR) registered general practitioners and is lower than for vocationally registered medical practitioners (VR). To off-set some of the cost of seeing non-vocationally registered medical practitioners, the fee for these doctors is reduced. Please note that our non-vocationally registered medical practitioners are all highly regarded, skilled and experienced doctors.

Other points:

Consumables used as part of your treatment may attract a separate fee.

Travel vaccines will incur an additional fee

Cancellation fees may be charged for failure to attend.

Fees for other services are available from reception.
Repeat Prescriptions, Referrals and Pathology and Radiology Tests:
Doctors providing prescriptions, referrals to either specialists, radiology or pathology tests are responsible ethically and legally to ensure that these are correct and warranted. A consultation, therefore, with a doctor will be necessary even if the referral or prescription has been recommended by another professional.
Appointments with specialists and pathology radiology tests may incur additional charges.
All telephone requested replacement scripts and referrals posted out to patients will incur an administration fee.

Payment

We accept payment by cash, Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Rebates from either Medicare or your private health fund can be processed at the time of payment using our Hicaps system.  For eligible services, your rebate is then automatically paid back to your account.
