Port Melbourne Medical Doctor Fees

Port Melbourne Medical is a private billing clinic with the exception of Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) Gold Card holders (for appointments within hours).

This means that Medicare only covers part of the cost to see the doctors and nurses, and there will be a gap payment you’ll need to make. Gap payments are almost the same whether you have a long or short consultation.

If the doctor fees are higher than what you anticipated prior to the consultation, this is likely because of Medicare requirements and compliance — the correct item number for each consultation type must be submitted to Medicare.

On Sundays, there is a larger Medicare rebate for standard and long consultations, so your out-of-pocket gap payment is less. But you’ll find that certain things, such as a Mental Health Care Plans, don’t have a larger Medicare rebate, meaning your gap payment will be slightly more. If you aren’t sure, speak to reception before you make an appointment.

The gap payment is usually only known after the consultation has occurred and this may affect your Medicare rebate. If you have any queries about fees and rebates, speak to our reception staff or your doctor.
