Fees & Payment

Port Melbourne Medical is a private billing practice. Fees are payable at the time of consultation by cash, credit or EFTPOS. The Medicare rebate can be paid directly into your bank account or by sending the claim online to Medicare.

The standard fees (Mon-Fri 8am-6pm) will increase from an out of pocket cost of $45 to between $50 out of pocket for the consult item numbers.  The after hour and weekend fee will have an out of pocket ranging from $60-$65 an increase from $58-60.

Repatriation/Veterans affairs patients are directly invoiced to Veterans Affairs during normal business hours but not after hours.  Health Care card holders and Concession card holders will be charged the full fee amount.

From the 1st November 2018 immunisations that are a part of the government schedule will incur a fee of $15 for the first family member.  A discount will apply for subsequent family member’s immunised on the same day.  If vaccines are being given after a doctor’s consultation no fee will apply e.g. following a six week baby check.

*** Medicare item numbers will vary depending on the nature of the consultation. An item number is a Medicare code that determines your rebate and there are some item numbers that do not have after hours increased rebates. Therefore the out of pocket fee will increase in these instances. These item numbers include GP mental health care plans/reviews and pregnancy related consultations.

Please note that the fees above apply to standard general practice related consultations. Different fees may be incurred for services including but not limited to: care plans and skin checks.
