Changes to consultation fees from Monday 1st August 2016

Please be advised that as of Monday 1st August 2016 the following item numbers will be increased as follows:

Item number 104 initial consult will be $235 with a Medicare rebate of $72.75. Item number 105, subsequent consult will be $140 with a Medicare rebate of $36.55. Some of our doctors discount these fees for pensioners. The pensioner rates are $170 and $140 respectively.

The Medicare rebate remains unchanged. We have not increased our fees for over 2 years and are doing so in order to provide our hard working staff with a salary increase. Many of the other expenses of running a medical practice business have continued to increase during that time.

All surgical and treatment fees will remain unchanged at this time but will be reviewed in November when the AMA publishes it’s member’s fee recommendations.

Private health funds do not provide any rebates for consultations with a medical doctor.

Please also be aware that Medicare will no longer send cheques for claims. You must register your bank account details with Medicare to receive your rebate as of 1st July 2016.

Dr Donoghue is a Fellow of the Australasian College of Dermatologists. He trained at UNSW, and holds a Bachelor of Science (Medicine), Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.
