Tele-Health Services: Fees, Rebates & Financial Consent

Please read this page before signing our financial consent form (below). This is required to confirm your tele-health consultation booking.

To provide continued access to essential healthcare services during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Government has expanded Medicare-subsidised telehealth services for all Australians.

 

Clinic 66 is now taking Telehealth bookings to help you get the healthcare you need. Our reception team is available to talk to you about the cost of this service and rebates payable by Medicare.

 

If you hold a valid medicare card, you are entitled to receive the medicare scheduled rebates as outlined below.

 

You may also be eligible to receive bulk-billed consultations (free of charge to you) if you meet certain criteria - as outlined below.

 

Whilst there are some issues which can only be dealt with by a face-to-face consultation, much can be achieved through telehealth. We are still open at Clinic 66, and if your problem cannot be resolved with telehealth, we will invite you to attend the clinic.

 

Clinic 66 is a small, private specialised General Practice, and we privately bill most of our patients. This means that there will usually be a "gap fee" payable, as outlined below.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will it cost me?


The cost of the consultation will vary depending on the length of your appointment.

 

Where private billing applies, our reception staff will do their best to advise you of the out-of-pocket costs, based on an estimated time needed for your consultation.

 

Most consultations will be charged using a Medicare item number and in these cases, rebates will apply.
 

 

Do I need to sign anything to get bulk billed?


Bulk billing applies to Commonwealth concession card holders, children under 16 years old and patients who are more vulnerable to COVID-19.

 

If your telehealth consultation is bulk billed you will not need to sign anything. The Doctor’s documentation in the clinical notes of your agreement to assign the benefit as full payment for the service is sufficient.
