GP Fees

From Nov 1, 2018.

We don’t think its fair for patients to pay over $90 ($50+ gap) in the CBD, especially for simple issues that only take a few minutes to sort out.

We don't allocate longer than needed and charge the patient for it.

Our fees are based on the time actually spent with the doctor. As a result our average gap fee (after Medicare rebate) is about $18. 

We are able to do this because we carefully match appointment duration to the different types of patient presentations. The result is better patient flow with less doctor down-time.
