Medicare Safety Net
For patients undergoing regular treatment, please register with the Medicare Safety Net. Once your family reaches the Medicare Safety Net threshold, Medicare will cover 80% of your out of pocket expenses. For more details call Medicare on 132 011, or visit their website here.
Cancellations and Did Not Attend
Please contact us if you cannot attend your appointment as there are often people on our waiting list. Please call us more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to notify us of any changes or cancellations. To cancel a Monday appointment please call our office by 2.00 pm on Friday.
In order to ensure we are able to offer timely appointments all cancellations with less than 24 hour notice will incur a fee. This fee does not attract a Medicare Rebate and must be paid in full before any further appointments will be made.
Renewal of Referrals:
Please be aware that referrals last only for a certain period of time. A General Practitioner referral will last for 12 months. A referral from a Specialist will last for 3 months. Please remember to check with our reception staff if your current referral is in date when making follow-up appointments.
