GP Fees

From Jan 1, 2019.

We don’t think its fair for patients to pay over $90 ($50+ gap) for standard appointments 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 only about $25. 

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. This means we can keep our gap fees at about 50% of the CBD average whilst still giving each patient the time required to properly deal with their issues.
