What is your billing policy?
Annandale Family Doctors is generally a private billing practice. Offering a high standard of medical care requires substantial resources and time. Unfortunately, the Medicare rebates have not kept pace with the costs involved in delivering quality care. As a result, there is a gap fee between the fee charged and the rebate the patient receives from Medicare (see table here).
Bulk billing is available for Veterans Affairs patients, pensioners and children under 5 years old. Any patients suffering from temporary financial hardship you must discuss this with your doctor since all billing is at the discretion of the consulting doctor.
On Weekends there is no Bulk Billing. The full fee will be charged for all patients including children under 5 along with the processing of the Medicare rebate.
We ask that all accounts are paid at the time of consultation. We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Cash and EFTPOS.
The fee charged for a consultation is dependent on the level of complexity involved in the appointment, not just the time taken. There may also be further or varied charges for other items, such as Procedures, Insurance Medicals and Vaccinations. If you are unsure about any potential charges, please speak to the receptionist when making an appointment or the doctor during your consultation.
How do I get a prescription or referral?
The practice requests patients come in for a consultation for scripts or referrals since it is necessary for the doctor to review your health prior to issuing these.
Do you provide home or nursing home visits?
The practice provides home visits for patients whose medical condition prevent them from attending the practice. Please ring in the morning to request the visit. We also visit patients in some local Nursing homes.
If you require an after hours home visit, please ring Sydney Medical service on 8724 6300
