To ensure the highest standard of care,Pensioners, seniors over 65 and children under the age of 16 years are bulk billed directly to Medicare. All other patients are billed according to our fee schedule. The majority of consultations performed attract a rebate from Medicare. This rebate is processed in the practice at the time of your consultation and can be deposited into your bank account. Some of our more specialized diagnostic procedures may attract additional consultation fees that are not covered by Medicare. Our Optometrists will ensure that at all times you will be informed of any additional fees before these tests are carried out.
