Billing Policy

At GPs on Bayview we take pride in our unwavering commitment to providing quality care to all our patients.

This does however come at a significant cost, which is unfortunately not matched by the current Medicare Rebate (“Bulk-Billing”).

To date we have offered “Bulk-billing” to children aged 5 years and under.

We will no longer be able to sustain this practice without compromising quality, so we have made the difficult decision of including a co-payment for all future consultations for children aged 5 years and under.

We are committed to ensuring that no-one is marginalised due to their inability to afford a co-payment.

We therefore will introduce a discounted fee for this group.

We will continue to bulk bill seniors with valid aged-pension cards and all immunisation appointments during regular business hours, which are Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm.

With Medicare EasyClaim the rebate is paid back into your account within minutes.

Payment can be made easily with Cash, EFTPOS or Credit Card.
