Patient Fee Information

The Doctors and Allied health professionals working out of Deepdene Surgery set their own fees. There will often be a gap “out of pocket” payment required. This fee allows your health professional to keep working out of Deepdene Surgery. The consultation fee helps to support reception, nursing, administration, computers, essential medical equipment – and many things you don’t see – training, insurance, registration, accreditation, professional membership, building and rent costs, electricity, internet, software, phones.

The Medicare rebate is not a doctor’s fee but is your Medicare insurance rebate. Bulkbilling, i.e. when the rebate only is charged as the fee, accounts for approximately half the value of the professional medical service. Your rebate has been eroded by successive governments – both Labor and Liberal – for decades.

What can you do?

Talk to your MP about your Medicare rebate not keeping up with the cost of seeing your doctor.
