Bookings & Fees

Small out of pocket fee

At Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre, experienced health care professionals and support staff pride themselves on delivering high quality, comprehensive health care. Our support staff also aim to educate patients on the relevant booking process with each independent doctor and their individual fees here at Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre.

As of the 1st of April 2023, Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre will introduce a small out of pocket fee for healthcare holders and blue pension card holders who first attended the centre after 13th March 2023.

Fees


Due to the failure of Medicare to keep pace with the cost of delivering primary healthcare and to maintain excellent standards, a fee for service will be charged for consultations booked with all doctors.  All private consultations will receive a medicare rebate which will be deposited directly into the patient’s bank account.

For those ineligible for bulk billing, a fee of $90.00 ($48.60 out of pocket) will be charged for standard consultations on weekdays (from 8:00 am – 4:50pm). Visits on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays will incur a higher fee. Speciality services are also privately billed and prices vary.

Each independent doctor has their own billing policy, for more information please visit your family doctor’s individual page.

Detailed information regarding the fees charged for the private billed services is available from reception.  Payment is required at the time of consultation.

For more information regarding bookings and fees at Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre please call one of our friendly receptionists on 07 3273 5022 .
