GP Fees

From Jan 1, 2019.

Our fees are based on the time actually spent with the doctor. As a result our average gap fee (after Medicare rebate) is just over $30. 

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 40% lower than the CBD average whilst still giving each patient the time required to properly deal with their issues.
